Join the Sussex Bird Club on its trip to Slaughter Beach on a falling tide in mid May---the perfect time for red knots, ruddy turnstones, shorebirds, ospreys, eagles, rails, gulls and terns.
Meet at Prime Hook NWR HQ at 8:00 a.m. We will observe birds in the parking lot and refuge entrance road before carpooling to Slaughter Beach. We'll stop at the SB Firehouse observation platform, then on to the new Marvel saltmarsh boardwalk for marsh wren, clapper rail and seaside sparrow. Next, we drive on Lighthouse Road where rails and seaside sparrows often are visible from the car, hopefully arriving at the renowned DuPont Nature Center about 10:00.
Details were emailed to SBC members. (Photo of Semipalmated Plover © Dick Plambeck)
