There has been an impressive diversity of swallows at Aspetuck Reservoir,
with all six regularly occurring species found on some days, including
today, over the past few weeks.  Interestingly, although Cliff Swallows
nested (or at least appeared to have nested) here, they are now the hardest
to find.  And Purple Martins, which were absent for most of summer, are
congregating just south of the dam in dead trees within the marsh (can be
viewed from the back of Aspetuck Cemetery).  There was also a young bald
eagle perched on a dead tree in the marsh today.
