Ospreys and Bats, September 3, 2014

I spent about 45 minutes scanning the lake and beach from the fishhook pier at Montrose early this morning. Shorebirds continue to be few and far between. The best I could manage were 1 Semipalmated Plover, 1 Spotted Sandpiper, and a heard only Greater Yellowlegs. Just after dawn I had 2 Osprey fly south over the point. One of these came in off the lake and flew low, right over the beach. I also had about 6 bats come in off the lake. This is the time of year to see migrating bats at Montrose.
