BMB05/20 Top of the Tram 20th June 2005

Perhaps a first tram at 10.15am kept our specie count down but we had a fine morning, quite warm and comparatively clear. There were many Rock Wrens in Long Valley, which appeared to be nesting. We picnicked at our usual spot but although there was a lot of water, there were
few birds, save for a very curious American Robin.

We saw 15 Species, including many Rock Wrens, Clark's Nutcracker, Townsends Solitaire, and the Robin which we have not seen on the Preserve this season.

Some of us continued to Hidden Valley, which, as expected, was a sight to behold and a first time for Margaret. Afterwards we repaired to ToT for well earned Beer and Coke.

Thursday, 30th June Oak Glen

I fear that I left Mission Creek too late in the season – it may be rather warm by now. We have clearance to visit Oak Glen on June 30th; if you would like to join me please let me know, preferably by email, and I will let you have details.

Good Birding……..bb
