Thanks to the tip on parking at lot 6 from Neil Hayward and taking the new trail down to the water, I found the previously reported Wilson’s Plover at Sandy Point (there were still no parking spots at Sandy Point at 5:30 !) Also present: 4 Western Sandpiper 5 Dunlin 1 Buff-breasted Sandpiper > 100 both Semipalmated Sandpiper and Plover 3 Sanderling
The birds were jittery - at least once due to a Peregrine’s swoop through. Late afternoon sun was beautiful, as noted by a large contingent of beach goers also enjoying this perfect late summer day.
