Prime Hook NWR October 10 Trip Report


11 Sussex Bird Club members birded the refuge HQ area including the boardwalk trail and Turkle and Fleetwood Ponds. We observed some 36 species including an elusive solitary sandpiper. Then we carpooled to Fowler Beach via Prime Hook Road and Cod’s Road, stopping several times. Two northern harriers put on a show and a Coopers Hawk was seen from the road. We saw many sparrows and finally identified at least one as a savannah sparrow. We had planned to head to Slaughter Beach and the Marvel Saltmarsh boardwalk but we spent all our time at PHNWR headquarters and Fowler Beach.
