Highlights from two tide cycles:
Starting with the Terns. A smaller mixed flock of Terns than seen over the past
few weeks. The most notables being:
1st Summer Black Tern
Roseate Tern (2)
There was a slight uptick in Shorebirds. With way moreoo Least and Semipalmated
Sandpipers than I have seen over the past few weeks. In total 15 species of
Short-billed Dowitcher (57) - notable because of the 3 Hendersoni subspecies
candidates. I had recorded 1 well marked bird several weeks ago and now there
are two additional candidates.
One unreadable (stained and dirty) flagged Semipalmated Sandpiper.
On the beach side, a sea watch was non productive but I did count 9 Lesser
Black-backed Gulls loafing on the beach.
