What was a rather slow week, birding and photography wise, ended with a bang. I arrived at Milford Point at around 1:45. As I got out onto the beach, there was nothing except for Gulls. They were mainly Ring-billed Gulls. I was hoping for something rarer.
As the minutes moved by, more and more birds started showing up. A pair of American Oystercatchers moved onto the beach. Then I spotted 2 Piping Plovers due to the gracious help of a fellow birder. I got some great shots of the birds, but they are going to have to wait to be seen until tomorrows blog post. By the end of the day, 2 pairs of American Oystercatchers had shown up, but the number stayed the same for the tiny Piping Plovers.
One Osprey was present on the platform located in the center of the marsh. I wish I could’ve watched them longer, but the wind was so strong, it was pushing you around!
Tomorrows blog post will feature tips on Shorebird photography, as well as my favorite photographs from this afternoon.
