I haven't been to Breezy in a while. No rarities warranting in-the-field reports, but there were some good birds!
Highlights: A WHIMBREL was flushed at the jetty by some fishermen - it flew east, turning back and eventually landed on the beach about half way between the 4x4 trail and the jetty. There were three RED KNOTS, all quite dapper juvenile birds. 10 Willets, including both eastern and western birds. 12 species of shorebird in total, as well as 4 Royal Terns, one near-adult Lesser Black-backed Gull, and continuing White-winged and Surf Scoter drakes rounded out the evening.
