Barbara and I took a drive over to Ridott and checked the fields that were extensively flooded in July. There are lot of exposed mudflats along Rock City Road north of Ridott and on River Road to the northeast of Ridott. A telescope is a must. There weren’t many shorebirds there at noon on Sunday, but this spot bears watching. The waters are receding and more mud will be exposed. Avoiding mid-day heat haze is a must.
Along Rock City Road at noon were the expected Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, DC Cormorants and Blue-winged Teal, plus an abundance of Killdeer.
