Port Charlotte Rookery

 The rookery in Port Charlotte is very active, with about 42 nests
The trees are sycamore, which we would normally expect to be in full leaf by now - but as you can see they are still very bare.  There are various theories as to why this may be, ranging from the fact that this has been a very cold May, to damage sustained in the January 3rd hurricane, to the trees natural rythmn being still disrupted by the storm of May 23rd last year when all their leaves were stripped off and they had to grow a new set....
