Vandemark turf had 92 Killdeer in AM, 32 in eve.
Golden Plovers, still in partial breeding plumage, noted first on green sod, then flew to dun brown area in front of Shiloh Church where peep used to hang out. Running and pecking quite actively, and must have arrived after 8AM. First seen around 7 PM, and still seen huddled down at 7:35 PM.
No other shorebirds seen. Killdeer mainly fairly close to road, flocking in far west and far east.
