Lord Delaware North End: Feeding on the Mattaponi

Friday, April 4th, 4:30 pm

It was a high tide with winds coming from the west.  Just as I suspected, the osprey are using the old power line post to feed on.  There is also a dead pine tree near the entrance to Rt. 33 where I spooked one.  Nothing is changing color as far as the marsh grasses are concerned.  The trees and blackberry bushes do have leaves coming in.  I counted about 15 cormorants on the pilings.  From where I stand at the bottom of the nesting platform, the nest doesn’t seem too large.   Driving on the bridge, I an only catch a glimpse of it and see that it is of descent size.  No eggs yet, I belive.
