From Susan Treesh:
Does anyone know what is going on with all the roadwork along Amwell Road just to the east of Hillsborough? It looks like another flood control project. I stopped there and birded all the way down to Royce Brook, and had a dozen turkeys.
I also went over to Duke Estates and birded the restored wetlands area and farm fields. Not too birdy, but I was impressed by the restoration work and it looks to be a great place this fall and winter. I had a juvenile wood thrush, and five kestrels, among the usual birds.
[Editor's note: Susan is referring to the Hillsborough Rt. 206 bypass project. The construction work you see on Amwell road east of Rt. 206 is the future Rt. 206. This is part of the Hillsborough Town Center project to be completed later this decade. It affects Amwell, Homestead and Hillsborough Roads at least.
