As July draws to a close the heat of the sun can be felt the moment it rises above the horizon. High humidity and hot temperatures dominate the weather now forcing most daytime wildlife movement to occur either early mornings or late evening.
I visited the site of the former Meadow Grounds Lake shortly after sunrise today. Watching it for an hour the only wildlife I noted were a number of sparrows and a group of killdeer. Even with the best of luck it will be some years yet before we see construction begin.
After a drier than normal spring we more than made up for it with an extremely wet June. While the wet weather was great for the corn crop it played havoc with the local farmers attempting to make hay.
Soon the cool winds of autumn will begin to blow but for now I am relishing these lazy hazy days of Summer!
