Warden’s Report from Dale,
What a difference a couple of days meant! Last weekend was cold and dry, mid-June and in the low 50s, great if it was April, but was mid June. Monday and Tuesday were cool and very windy, with gusts to 40 mph. This has been the norm not the exception all spring. Well, if a cold spring will bring a super nice summer here we go! Now it’s brilliant blue sky and 75 as I write this.
On the water the loons have nested with reports of chicks on the upper Megunticook River and Norton Pond. I have seen the chick on Norton pond . It’s black about six inches long and swimming along with parents. There are more nests on the lake with adults still sitting on eggs so please, if you see a nest, give it a wide berth.
The gosling’s around the lake are starting to show color . Some are much older than others so keep a sharp eye out for them.
If you are water skiing or tubing remember that you must have observer in the boat at least 12 years of age looking back at the people being towed . This is the law and you will be stopped without a spotter.
Have fun and put safety first on the waters.
