Subject: Edisto Beach curlew

Hello all,
The long-billed curlew(s) at Edisto had not been reported for a week, so we undertook a trip down there with little hope for success. But we went this morning anyway. After a bit of scoping the dozens of shorebirds on the mudflat across the mouth of Big Bay Creek, a single lbcu appeared on the nearest point of mudflat and was well seen by all of us. Charles Donnelly showed up about that time and I bet his list will be more detailed than ours.
Let me repeat the directions we received: Visit Beach access 47 at low tide, walk to the beach, turn left. Look at the flats on the marsh north of the creek.&nbsp; .&nbsp;

We went over to Beach Access 2 and looked for the common eider there, but saw only scoters between there and Beach Access 3.
