Wayland for early migrants

March 25th:

Three people, including the leader, were on this trip.  Just a few days ago the temps were in the 80s, today they barely got to 50F.  We went to the Paine Estate/Green Way property which abuts the Sudbury River and Heard's Pond is on the other side.  Water levels are low so duck counts are lower than past years.  30 Wood Ducks are a highlight of the day.  A couple of Belted Kingfishers were noisy and kept flying back and forth behind the Wayland Town Hall.  Over 400 Tree Swallows were a sight.  We were able to locate bluebirds and a Pine Warbler.

S-Sudbury, rest in Wayland unless noted.
