16 species of shorebirds including aforementioned Red Knot,
Ruddy Turnstone, 2 RN Phalaropes, 2 Sanderling.
No big shorebirds!
Lots of ducks.
2 Peregrine Falcons joined the party and kept shaking things up.
To me, the shorebirds were chowing down ahead of the big frontal system coming in tonight. My guess is these guys will be leaving but hopefully I'm wrong and they'll stick around for others to enjoy!
