Report Details

Apart from assorted birds--whimbrels, gulls. crows and sanderlings--and sea-borne litter, there was nothing to report about this mile north of the Coquille River. Styrofoam litter took several forms: a 2-foot yellow sheet, scattered white pieces, a fishing float. Plastic bottles, too. Also in the driftline were small stones, shell fragments, crab molt and some kelp. Though cloudy and cool with a light northerly wind, it was pleasant walking shortly after high tide.

Rock hunters delight in this otherwise boring stretch of beach; 3 were mining away in a big bed of small stones despite heavy fog and their 4 at-large dogs.
