It was a beautiful day for the coast, and the birds co-operated. After seeing several flights of ibis and oystercatchers at Bald Point, we were off to a good start. The beach at Alligator point looked pretty barren at a casual glance, but we walked along the rack lines and saw lots of birds digging through the seaweed. We sat down on the sand and watched one of the sanderlings work his way closer and closer so wec ould get good pictures. Then we saw a big group of oystercatchers resting on a dock. The coup for the day was at Mashes Sands -13 Marbled Godwits, who were feasting on horseshoe crab eggs on the beach.
