The team were out from dawn to dusk for Global Birding Day, visiting a number of local coastal sites and the grasslands of the Kennebunk Plains. In all we recorded 90 species, including several America, GABRaT ll and State ticks. Our first site – the really lovely Audubon East Point reserve at Biddeford – was really productive and gave us a good variety of coastal birds as well as warblers in the bushes. It was two o’clock before we could take a break for lunch, then it was back out for the final session until sunset. Some great birds and an opportunity to be part of the global birding community, doing what we love but, this time in someone else’s ‘back yard’.
