North Shore trip - Dec 4th
Took the North Shore trip yesterday. Lots of waterfowl were seen with a highlight being a lone male Harlequin Duck being observed from Neptune Ave in Sea Bright. The bird was near the jetty just south of Neptune.
Other highlights were a Lesser Black-Backed Gull on Wreck Pond, a Common Goldeneye and a Canvasback on Lake Como. All 3 Scoters were also seen during the trip.
A few Laughing Gulls were still around, and a dozen Black-Bellied Plovers were on the beach just south of the Shark River Inlet. Along the coast numerous Northern Gannets were seen.
