Downy pecking at an old stalk of Japanese knotweed.
Caught by string and chicken meat by a man at Concrete Plant Park

They caught the blues right there. A tidal weir stopped the bunker from swimming farther upstream and the blues were feasting. I don't know where they got the lo mein.
Seined from the area next to the bulk head and returned.
At the very top of the estuary, salinity was 0 ppt at the time.
First sighting in this area this year. Saw one to the north a week ago.
