The weather was perfect, cool and breezy and an enthusiastic small gathering of friends from ACES made the event even more interesting.
We sighted 2 cros, 2 snakes, several orb web spiders, lots of mangrove trees with interesting root systems, some egrets, red shanks, and a few white belly sea eagles.
Their first experience of encountering cros in the wild, watching closeup at green whip snakes and tree climbing crabs, were highlights during the 2 hour tour. A brief intro to the wonderful world of migratory birds that visit us annually opened their eyes to how our living environment owes much to our feathered friends.
Hope more members can join us the next time.
