Hi Dave, Alan and all,
Thanks for these clarifications. By coincidence this place just came up a few days ago in family discussions, and it turns out our kids have their own name for it: the Death March beach.
It's definitely a long haul through and over dunes via the Sutton Creek access, plus a creek crossing along the way. But once you get there it's a great beach for birding -- a regular sandpiper Serengeti at times.
And usually there aren't many other beach-goers to contend with. Which, I suppose, is why Snowy Plovers like it too.
Happy birding, Joel
