    Default Cattus Island County Park, NJ

    I will be in the vicinity of Cattus Island County Park in Ocean Co., NJ this upcoming weekend (June 15-17, 2012). Does anyone know if this is a good photo spot at this time of year and which species I would likely encounter? Any particulars are welcome. Thanks.
