Beach Bums

Checked all of the beaches and pools late afternoon, on the strength of having a Greenshank fly over the house. Nearly every beach I went to had somebody on it, walking dogs, chucking rocks, sword fighting with kelp fronds or building rock castles (there is no sand on this particular beach !). I did manage a total of 76 Sanderlings and 2 Common Sandpipers though, despite all the disturbance.
