We have a few requests for information from CT DEEP as they would like the following from seasonal monitoring observations and data:
1) DEEP is attempting to determine the 2014
kite-boarding activity and disturbances across the state. Did you
observe any kite boarder activity? We are looking for the beach name,
date of occurrence, how many boarders were present and any other details
you may have - specific location of kite boarding in water, location of
equipment on beach, any board/kite encounter with birds, and so on.
Please let us know if you saw any Red Knots during the season with what
date, beach, number of individuals and their activity (resting,
feeding, etc.) if possible.
3) Please let us know if you saw any Diamondback Terrapin turtles during the season with what
date, beach, number of individuals and their activity (basking, nesting,
etc.) if possible.
If you have already emailed any or all of
this information with your regular reports there is no need to again and
we have it. Otherwise please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we
will compile it then pass it on. Thank you all so much for any help!
