Late Eve Black Skimmer

A brief visit by a single BLACK SKIMMER at 841 pm this evening along the west shore of Prospect Lake (thereby,a flythru); I almost missed seeing it after sitting awhile by the shore,got up to sit on a wet bench and promptly saw the bright profile of the bird going towards West Island. Getting back to the shore, I watched the skimmer circle back and head over and out over Well Drive. such a graceful looking bird. Adding to my sightings ,a Black crowned Night Heron and a Brown Bat taking sips from the lake surface, same spot. --KB
