I was able to get to Goleta this morning (September 23, 2020 ) to see the sandpiper and this time, was not disappointed; the bird flew past me with a smallish group of Sanderlings and landed on the beach ahead of me as I was walking back towards the stairs at Lot 6 parking lot. I was able to get a few shots before it took off again, this time heading back towards the pier.
I tried to send an e mail (two) to the group but they aren't showing up so I am using the web part to send for now. I hope I can share photos here!
the first couple of shots are blurry, but represent my first-ever sighting of this species:
