June 21, 2016 – Injured Loon in the Pine Point Cove
The association has been contacted by Angela Nourer, a member of the Loon Preservation Committee, in regards to issues with the loons on the lake this season.
“We have had a number of extra loons on the lake, in addition to our two nesting pairs. This has resulted in some brutal loon-to-loon fights.
There is a badly injured loon against the reeds in Pine Point cove. We are watching it and hope to capture it soon, but it is still able to dive, so that makes capture difficult.”
This loon should not be approached. If it is found dead, it should not be touched. In the case it is found dead, please call Angela Nourer at 978-836-8309 and she will retrieve the deceased loon. There are rules from NH Fish and Game about the retrieval of a deceased loon.
Update: The injured loon is no longer in the cove, seemingly ejected by the other pair of loons.
Beginning at 10:30am on Monday June 13th, several areas of Northwood Lake will be treated with the herbicide Navigate (2,4-D) in order to control variable milfoil. See the map here for those areas affected.
Yellow signs will be posted around the lake and abutting homeowners notified by mail. The following temporary restrictions will be in effect for the indicated areas only:
1. No swimming for 24 hours OR until 6/14/16 at 3pm
2. Do not use lake water for drinking, irrigation or for mixing sprays for agricultural or ornamental plants until further notice. Some irrigation restrictions may be relaxed, at the discretion of the applicator. These restrictions apply to all intakes within 1,200 feet of a treatment area.
Once post-treatment water testing is completed and found satisfactory, these restrictions will be lifted.
