disturbance - 7:30 eagle (N) There were 2 juvenile eagles just North of site. No disturbance, but PG's were mostly in area 3 and 4.

disturbance - 7:46 unknown (Sm) fled shore, but only a hundred feet then drifted back within minutes. This happened a couple more times during monitoring. No reason for flight. Not all flew out. Assume just nervousness.

disturbance - 7:46 other (Sm) Heron flew over site. Did not disturb all and maybe just a coincidence since they did this a couple times when nothing was around to disturb them.
