found in Knox-Marsellus Marsh on 6/18. Luckily this bird has stuck around and 
has been seen by almost everyone who has looked for it. It was present this 
morning at the west end of Knox-Marsellus and easily picked out with a scope 
from East Road. Unfortunately the even more rare GARGANY has not been seen 
since 6/16.      6/17: A LEAST BITTERN was found at the Morgan Road marsh.      
6/18: BLACK-NECKED STILT discovered at Knox-Marsellus Marsh from East Road.  An

found along Towpath Road.
