if it helps anyone, here is the exact location where I saw the Ruff this afternoon. "Along the EEC entrance road" is a pretty, well, I would call it a rough description of the bird's location.
The bird was close to 37.43298, -121.95925. This is to the SE of the entrance road, as you head NE towards the EEC; and just SW of the landfill hill, i.e. before you reach the hill.
When I spotted it, it was in view near the obscuring vegetation closer to the road. But then it took a few steps NE towards the hill, and disappeared behind that vegetation.
Even at that distance, the red-orange legs were striking through binoculars.
