ECOC Annual Ipswich River Watershed Bird Trip

May 10, 2014: 6AM 3PM

Participants: Robert Buchsbaum, Dave Brewster, Tim Brown, Mary Stephens, Ben Peters, Robert Cary,

Route:  Because of the threat of thunder storms, the group did this totally by land.  Places we visited included the Great Wenham Swamp Bike Trial, Topsfield Fairgrounds, and Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary.  After lunch, two of us visited the Willowdale Meadows area and the Hamlin Reservation and two others visited Patton Park in Hamilton.
