The group Ten of us spent a glorious morning at Lake Woodruff NWR.  They had just opened the road to the closest parking lot and mowed the berm so we could walk on them.  The water levels were still very high so the species count was lower than we would have oped for, but we did see 34 species.  Then, many of us adjourned to the Ponce de Leon State Park for a pancake breakfast.
