At least one Roseate Tern in the flock of about 500 terns at the far tip of Morse Point this morning. One Least Tern as well. Still 5 Piping Plovers and a few American Oystercatchers.
Migrant shorebird numbers were low, but I didn't check the lagoon or Sandy Point. At least 3 Lesser Yellowlegs the highlight in that regard.
The butterfly gardens, supported in part by an IBA small matching grant from Audubon, look great and were loaded with Broad-winged skippers and monarchs, despite the wind.
