VF herons etc
walked the towpath west from Whipple Bridge to ferry drive this morning before it got too hot. least bittern called once in the same vicinity reported before, but I couldn't get a look. there were also 25 great blue herons, 22 great egrets, and 1 green heron. Lots of swallows also gathering up - mostly tree, but there were a few each of barn and rough-winged, and was able to pick out 1 bank.
