Just came from there. There were two Whimbrels at the end of the Castle
Creek jetty, constantly being flushed by walkers. They would return, but in
a very short while would be flushed again. These birds need a place to rest
for extended periods, but just can't get it here. Looks like I'm going to
have to re-present my idea of "Sandpiper Island", an offshore refuge that is
inaccessible by humans. It got shot down by the city and state the first
time, 3-4 years ago, but I'm going to jump back in and take the issue as far
as I can.

There were just 4 Whimbrel and 10 Ruddy Turnstones at Lakefront Park,
Geneva. They were on the small beach near the new metal bridge over Castle
Creek. They were flushed by dog walkers while Linda Mott and I were there
but returned to the beach. At times they would land on the rocks on the
jetty. Also saw the Cerulean Warbler in the Mays Point nesting area today
for the first time this year for me. In the Wilgoose field on Rt. 89 we saw
two adult Sandhill Cranes with two small colts. Janet Akin, Seneca Castle
