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,
