Short Walk at Cherry Creek Reservoir

August 6, 2016

Rebecca Kosten and I to stretch our legs walked a few miles at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe).  Temperatures were in the high 70s at 4:00 pm; winds were 10+ mph.

Few birds were encountered between the Smoky Hill Picnic area and the swim beach.  Too many people on the swim beach made for no accessible shore for shorebirds.

We found the same between the Lake Loop and Mountain Loop, few birds.

Eight Forster's Terns stood on the floating telephone poles lining the southwest marina.  The majority of gulls were Ring billed with a couple of California mixed in with the group.
