I was there yesterday too and also saw many birds out of reach way to the north 
and northwest (from the usual access point, a short walk from the parking lot). 
 Does anyone know if it's possible to rent a small boat somewhere nearby and 
get to those sandbars and islands?

We spent five hours on the flats at Cupsogue yesterday morning, covering both 
outgoing and incoming tides. Highlights were seventeen species of shorebirds 
including  a single Whimbrel and four Pectoral Sandpipers. Terns of interest 
were Royal Terns(11), Black Tern (1), Roseate Tern (1) and Forster’s, Common, 
and Least Terns. Shorebird numbers were not particularly impressive, and, in 
what seems to be the "new normal”, many of the species did not visit the flats 
east of the inlet, preferring to remain on the distant sandbar(s) in Moriches
