A combined BBC/SSBC trip to Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary produced the following.  The anticipated front did not come through last night and there was virtually no migration detected.  The walk began at 8:00 and I arrived at 6:30 to see what was happening, so some of the participants may see species and numbers of birds more than they thought.  9 others arrived and we had a delightful walk through the sanctuary.  The highlight was an unexpected Philadelphia Vireo which stayed in view long enough for all but one to see.  There was a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk which put down right in front of us and played a little with a recently hatched Snapping Turtle.  It eventually took off with it.  We saw a few of these small turtles.  Lots of raptors were seen from Fox Hill.
