Shinnecock Dunes Nature Walk Recap
A rainy forecast on September 13th did not prevent seven hardy birders from making the trip out east to Shinnecock Inlet this morning. Between the rain and the high tide we had some flooded road conditions to deal with as we made our way down Dune Rd.
The bird of the day was Egrets. we had over forty egrets, a mix of Greater and Snowy. There were a couple of Great Blue Herons just to be different. The high tide kept us from seeing the usual number of shorebirds we see on this trip. We only saw a few Black-bellied Plovers and a small flock of Sanderlings plus on Greater Yellowlegs.
While viewing from the Tiana Beach Pavilion we did see some dolphins and one whale breach.
We mad the best of a challenging morning.
