And last month I had regular groups of Forster's Terns along West Cliff Dr. and nearby areas, the first time in quite a few winters when I recall seeing them so regularly in this local area. Also there have been occasional Red necked Grebe sightings by the wharf, including a high of (3) a few weeks ago.
