My Day in the Salt Marsh
Looking up Muddy Creek. Well named I might add.
Common Reed, Phragmites, on the right, almost certainly the "bad" invasive Phrag and not the native "good" Phrag.
Mummichogs, (Fundulus heteroclitus) were concentrated in the shallows. Out in the creek, there were some predators attacking them once in a while, with a lot of splash. I caught a few glimpses of the predator, but not enough to ID it. Reasonable guesses include Largemouth Bass, Yellow or White Perch and Chain Pickerel.
Not the worst way to spend a day. I could have skipped the part where the dock broke, though.
