Revisiting Nelson Park, Plymouth, Massachusetts

Osprey Family in Nest
This morning, before the sun broke through the clouds and even though it was humid, we traveled down again to Nelson's Beach in Plymouth to observe the ospreys had to see what else there was along the shore.  The tide was out, all the usual gulls were either resting on the beach or swimming around.  When we arrived all five of the ospreys were in the nest and then the adults Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton took off and flew around.  Lady Hamilton flew when and landed on the nest, where she started to feed one of the Osprey youngsters.  Lord Nelson flew around and finally landed on the top of a tree.  In the meantime, a great blue Heron was in the water and then took off flew around and came back in and landed a couple of times.  A number of shorebirds flew when and and by getting low to the ground were able to capture images of both semipalmated plovers and semipalmated sandpipers.  I was hoping that we would get other shorebirds, but nothing showed up or could be found on searching the shoreline.
