Radnor Lake
Davidson Co.
I only walked the road at Radnor Lake this morning, but had a good  
sighting of 2 Black Terns.  They were flying low over the lake and picking  
off the surface.  Then they flew up several hundred feet over the  lake and 
appeared to be feeding up there.  As I left, they were back down  at lake 
level and foraging off the surface again.  There was also 1 Spotted  Sandpiper 
on the fallen tree in the water in front of the ranger's house.   There 
continue to be at least 30 Wood Ducks along the far bank, and today they  were 
joined by 3 Pied-billed Grebes.  And 4 otters swam across the lake  together.
