Not an overwhelming number of shorebirds present on the flats today but enough to keep things interesting. I spent several hours working the flats through low and on the rising tide.
18 species of shorebirds. The highlights were 10 Flagged Red Knots, 1 flagged Semipalmated Sandpiper, 1 flagged Ruddy Turnstone and 1 flagged Piping Plover. All flags observed were read and documented. Several Royal (15) and Roseate Terns (3) joined the usual array of Terns.
