This morning I took a walk along the West End jetty, as well as on the ocean front east to the swale. Highlights included two Razorbills, four Purple Sandpipers on the jetty, a female King Eider alighting briefly on the ocean before flying west toward the West End jetty, and a flyby Snowy Owl. More expected species were my first Fall Horned Grebe, and a good late morning flight of Red-throated Loons and Black Scoter. Passerines were in low numbers or missing entirely.
