Subject: [SanDiegoRegionBirding] Willet @ Lake Murray (6/29/20)
Of local interest, a post-rain check of Lake Murray turned up a worn adult (presumably early southbound migrant) Willet.

I first spotted it ~11:15am flying around the buoys by the dam while scanning across the lake from the opposite side, thank goodness it’s the easiest shorebird to identify in flight from over a half mile away with handheld 10x binos! It flew into Alvarado Bay at which point I lost it, but I was able to refind it loafing on the shore 20-25 minutes later after walking back to my car and circling around to the Kiowa entrance.
