Barnegat Light for Winter Ducks and Seabird Photography (Rain Date!)

Barnegat Light for Winter Ducks and Seabird Photography (Rain Date!)

Hi Folks – Jan 28th is rained out. Rescheduled to Saturday Feb 4th. We really need good weather for this trip and it looks like we will finally get that on Saturday. Forecast is sunny and 34 degrees.

Barnegat Lighthouse and jetty are famous for wintering ducks including Harlequin, Long-tail ducks and Eiders. In addition, we often see Northern Gannets diving close to shore and walk amongst Purple Sandpipers, Dunlin and other shorebirds on the jetty. We also have a good chance to see Ipswich race of Savannah Sparrow and maybe even a Snowy Owl along the dunes.

Bring your camera for up close photographs of some of these species. We will linger at the jetty and have plenty of time to capture a few outstanding shots.

Meet in the lighthouse parking lot at 7:30 AM so that we can get out to the jetty in good light. Or, meet us later out on the jetty. If we have time, we can also peruse the back bay coves along LBI.

Trip Leader: Linda Widdop – look for green Fiat 500X

This trip is free to all. Please note that we will reschedule if weather forecast is bad. Please check this posting the day before the trip for update.
