I started out at Siegler Rd. and headed along the North Causeway to the dike separating the Nelson and Long Pond Units. Water levels were high in both units, with a nice new crop of cattails appearing to grow along the west side of the LPU. The only highlight was a foraging Solitary Sandpiper in the ditch to my right.
The sand pile along the south shoreline of Cell 4 has a Bank Swallow colony. Luckily the pilings along the shoreline help protect it from erosion. Hopefully it'll continue to grow!
