A foggy morning

On Nov. 3 Ed Pike did a waterbird count 7:20 am till 9:50 am, from McGalpin Point.  The Straits were foggy and I could not see the bridge.  I believe there was about a mile of visibility.  In the second hour the fog started to lift and I could see almost half of the bridge.  Then the fog moved back in and the bridge disappeared again.  Only a few waterbirds seen with such low visibility.  The other problem was that every time I went to use my spotting scope the lenses would be fogged up and needed to be wiped off to see.

Two C. Crows were seen flying south across the Straits.  Very few gulls were seen; only a few Ring-billed Gulls.  The D. C. Cormorants seem to have all moved south.  Hoping for better conditions nest time.
