Did a run up to Stockton Lake's Aldrich arm.  A month ago it was just about perfect for shorebirds, but because of the dry weather since the water is down to the river channel.  However, the grasses are still good and there are some decent damp mudflats.  If you don't mind hiking to get close to the banks there are some shorebirds reachable to be observed.  It is amazing how hot the mudflats can be on a 90 deg. day, so take water.


3 Mississippi Kites; Little Blue Herons; 6 Semipalmated Plovers; 1 PIPING PLOVER; Solitary, Western, Least Sandpipers; 5 White-rumped Sandpipers; 6 Stilt Sandpipers and 2 BUFFBREASTED Sandpipers.
