Sherpa Marsh

Just got in from a late evening walk around the marsh, sort of vaguely hoping for the Stork to drift in somewhere. No such luck, but a Fox out in the open, eyeing the loads of Mallard ducklings. 2 male Teal, but the main highlight was finding 8 Common Sandpipers, so at least some migration up here in the north. A small group of 20 or so Sand Martins and Swallows flew over, and 15 Pied Wagtails on a wire by the Toll House.
