Chris Hockema and I drove throught the night from Minnesota to beat the
rain, and were lucky to see the Wagtail near the eastern corner of cell 3 at
about 8:15AM Monday morning. While walking the dikes to get to a better
vantage point, we lost track of the bird. Them the rains got heavier, and
we gave up. While walking from the NW corner of cell 3 back south, a flying
White Wagtail caught our eyes, crossing the dike, and headed north out of
sight, roughly towards Vermet.
Shorebirds observed include Dunlin and Black-bellied Plover. Several Lesser
Black-backed Gulls were also present.
Fun bird! Thanks for all the updates!
