Bird walk Monday at Windmill Point

The Northern Neck Audubon Society will conduct a bird walk at Windmill Point led by Jeff Wright on Monday, beginning at 9 a.m.

Windmill Point, the easternmost part of Lancaster County, juts the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the Rappahannock River. It is listed as a birding hotspot on e-Bird which makes it a good location to see a variety of bird species. Possible sightings include Brown Pelicans, Killdeer, Spotted Sandpipers, Great Black-backed and Laughing Gulls, Royal and Common Terns, Red-headed Woodpeckers, Indigo Buntings, Osprey, and Great Blue Herons, a release said.

To reach the beach, head east from the traffic signal in White Stone, going about eight miles to the end of Windmill Point Road/Route 695 where the group will meet.
