A MARBLED GODWIT continued at Breezy Point through yesterday but not seen today.

During a break in the rain, a couple of CASPIAN TERNS put in an appearance near 
the jetty but never came in. Choosing instead to probably head for Staten 

Among the Shorebirds were, 51 RED KNOTS that included 1 juvenile and 6 flagged 

Yesterday I thought I observed juvenile Bank Swallows; today, I confirmed at 
least 4.

Late this afternoon, I stopped by Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge to scout the East 
Pond. I went in on the South End to check on the water level. The water level 
still remains high for this time of the year but there were small areas of 
flats opening up again. Let’s hope we get no more rain prior to the Shorebird 
Festival which is scheduled for this coming Saturday.

Over at the West Pond there were some shorebirds; mostly in the south east 
corner. I’d like to see if we could get better views of that corner.

I tweeted out a few photos of the water situation on the south end to help 
folks prepare for any visits to the East Pond. See link -
