Allsopp and Murray Parks 4/17/2009

Taking a beautiful day off, I went to Allsopp and Murray Parks this morning. I arrived at Allsopp at 7:30 having recently reviewed the trail map ( found at http://tinyurl.com/cxv7wr ) wanting to learn more about the park. I traveled some new to me areas in the highlands seeing a few first of seasons. I then moved to Murray, seeing some other interesting birds including perhaps last of season gulls. First of seasons marked with an asterisk. I spent about 3.5 hours at the two parks.
