A ten-minute stationary count just east of Parking Area 6 resulted in a
tally of at least 250 gannets, all flying (singly and in groups up to about
20) east to west with the brisk wind. During a nearly two-hour walk after
this, gannets streamed by the whole time, though in diminishing numbers.
Other sightings included a pair each of Piping Plovers and American
Oystercatchers on the (nearly deserted) beach that heads east from the lot,
and three (late?) Long-tailed Ducks just offshore. --Joe Wallace
