Rankin Bottoms, Cocke Co., TN
Lake level  985.29 
Scoping from Shore

Most of the shorebird species seen during the last week were present this 
morning, with the addition of Sanderling. The falling lake level has uncovered 
an increased number of mudflats and better access to the shoreline has improved 
the opportunities for scoping from shore. Still, one of the best concentrations 
of shorebirds is across the embayment from the coal tipple at a distance 
requiring high scope magnification.
