The Osprey platform at the Marine Nature Study Area has not fared well 
this year. First, the breeding failed and second, over the weekend, lightning 
hit the cam camera, metal supports and associated electronics.  The angle iron 
support is gone (possibly vaporized) and the aluminum housing pieces that 
survived show melted edges. The pole survived but has a non-blackened scar down 
its length.  Lightning is scary. Please be careful out there.
       Both Marsh Sparrows , Clapper Rails and Tricolored Heron continue along 
with a singing Willow Flycatcher in the dune area.
