I saw one, possibly two, Rough-legs along the Jones Beach strip today. About 11:30 I saw one just east of Field 5, 40.597417, -73.499946. I was quite close to the bird but wasn't able to get any photos. About an hour later I saw perhaps the same bird east of Gilgo around 40.621293, -73.384199. I got some good photos and posted to New York Birders (facebook) and ebird. I encountered that bird again farther east until 2:00.
