My ears kept on ringing Ginnie, Ginnie must be here taking photos too... Well at least that is what I envisioned. The Maplewood flats is in part run by the government but is all open and run via volunteers. It was a fun thing to do once with the group tour but we aren't as serious as most birders and got extremely cold standing out in the snow.
I'm still working on processing those photos, so here are a quick few. The below photo is from a beautiful day last Thursday at Ambleside beach and park.
