Sudbury River - Route 62 to Martha's Point and Back
River levels have remained high for quite some time now. Most of today's trash was encountered between the MBTA commuter rail bridge and the Sudbury Road causeway.
Wildlife seen this morning were mallards, Canada geese , red-winged blackbirds, tree swallows, red-tailed hawks, turkey vultures, and a couple of musquashes. Also saw two guys in a racing canoe getting in some training (perhaps for the upcoming Run of the Charles?)
My haul for the day was 83 pieces of trash. The breakdown was as follows: 35 recyclable (13 redeemable) and 48 pieces of misc. rubbish such as plastic bags, styrofoam cups, a fertilizer bag, and bait tubs. Pretty much the usual. YTD total stands at 1493.
