Menunketesuck Island fencing and more

Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds field staff has been extremely busy seven days a week with both assisting CT DEEP in exclosing four egg Piping Plover nests and continuing to add fencing and signage to locations with terns moving in, American Oystercatcher nests, and so forth. Yesterday our staff visited the critical Menunketesuck Island in Westbrook to continue this effort.

Elizabeth Amendola and Luis Martin completed this work and Elizabeth snapped a couple of shots before they left the island.

Looking good! Our staff being so busy does mean that there are many waterbirds nesting in Connecticut and we will do our best to ensure the maximum number of young fledge and head south in the coming months.
