At Melanie Lane Pond in Hanover Township, a Dunlin and Semipalmated Plover continue along with Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, Solitary, Spotted and Least Sandpipers and Killdeer. The assumption is that the Pectoral Sandpiper found on Saturday remains here as well. With today’s rains, the water level of the pond has risen, covering any exposed mud and pushing the shorebirds into the grassy area lining the shore. The Semipalmated Plover was absent since May 9 assuming it is the same individual. Wilson’s Snipe seem to have left the area after a lengthy stay producing numerous individuals.
