Our loons on Dunmore are fine as of last night. They had to endure moderate boat traffic yesterday for the first time this year. It’s quiet out there so far today.
Sally found just the one loon at Goshen Dam yesterday. She looked hard around the island and the marsh hoping to find a second one on a nest but no luck. As of now, a chick there would be a nice surprise.
Looking south from the beach, the loon is sitting on the nest nudged up against the third rock up the west shore. See it?
And next to rock #3, the loon is visible with decent binos. The view is much easier looking across from campsites 4, 5, or 6 on the east side. Best look is from 5 I think, or through the trees each side of 5. I think this shot was from somewhere between 5 & 6. Hatch date there should be just before the end of the month so if you get up there, please take a look and let me know what you found. The mate was floating way down in the south end. Enjoy, Mike
