Mile 153 Report
February 16, 2016
Nice quiet day, most notable were the hundreds (maybe 500) sanderlings in groups along tide face as well as one large clump busy on the sand!
Nice quiet day, most notable were the hundreds (maybe 500) sanderlings in groups along tide face as well as one large clump busy on the sand! Photo of that did not turn out well. Broken dune faces, don't have any photos of this happening previously. Not necessarily wave overtopping but there must have been some strong high waves. Several large logs either uncovered from inside the dunes or pushed up and into the dunes. Lots of driftwood at the dune face at north end of Mile 153. New piling just a little north of our mile. Maybe replacing one that has been north of the Tahkenitch drainage. Enlarging the plover protected area?
Other Activities: sitting in truck.
Hundreds of sanderlings in surf line.
Seaweeds and seagrass, Shells, Wood pieces.
Newly exposed roots/trees falling, Erosion of vegetated foredune. see photos of broken dunes and grass

Very foggy start to the walk, by the time we left the beach it was clear at 10:49am.
A beautiful sunny, windy day for a walk on the beach. Disturbing to see that an ATV had driven from past the north of our mile down to the bottom 1/4 of our mile in the Plover Nesting Protection zone.
