I spent a couple of hours on the coast today, before heading home to beat the snow. First time I've been seriously birding in a couple of weeks, for various reasons. I didn't get anything really rare, but I did see the adult Glaucous Gull at Seabrook town beach, plus a (probably) second-winter Glaucous Gull atop a light pole by the Yankee Fisherman's Co-op. There was also a flock of 20-30 Snow Buntings buzzing around the Hampton Beach State Park parking lot. The nicest sighting was a flock of Purple Sandpipers on the jetty by the harbor entrance - at least 27 birds, and perhaps a few more out of sight among the rocks.
