Twelve CVWO members had a great field trip to Wreck Island, the barrier island east of Oyster, last Saturday. Special Thanks to Dot Field, Natural Heritage Eastern Shore Region Steward and the Virginia Eastern Shorekeeper Program, for arranging transportation in two boats and co-hosting. The weather was most cooperative, which made the 7-mile trip out there very pleasant. The island is sparsely vegetated, very windswept and beautiful. There were extensive mudflats, with lots of birds, at low tide on the return trip. CVWO plans to arrange more field trips and we welcome ideas about places that people would like to see. Land birds were, of course, few out there, but we saw a wide variety of waterbirds. Some of the many highlights were Sandwich Tern, Black Skimmer, Marbled Godwit, Merlin, Bald Eagle and White Ibis.
