Thought I'd report this due to birds NOT hanging around at this shorebird area for very long.

Another "BDR" while running errands, this time to the Little Creve Coeur Lake/Creve Coeur Lake area out in West St. Louis co.
Went to the New MDC Mitigation Marsh (still part of LCCL) off of River Valley Drive.
Saw six MARBLED GODWITS at this marsh along with Lesser yellowlegs, Pects and one Spotted sandpiper.
This is a good place to regularly check because birds pop in and out so frequently.

Directions:
From OLIVE BLD turn onto RIVER VALLEY DRIVE (one block WEST of Hwy 141).
Follow this road through the subdivision, past Creve Coeur Athletic Club fields/LCCL area, past the farmer's buildings to the STOP SIGN. Turn RIGHT as this is still River Valley Drive and continue on this long, straight section of road to just before it goes over the Page Avenue Extension. To your right is the Mitigation Marsh. There is no parking along the road, BUT there is a dirt space I have used as a "parking lot" to pull off and view the marsh. 

Couldn't get to the main section of LCCL to look for Mike Brady's birds or any shorebirds there due to time restraints.  

Good birding,
Charlene Malone
