Report Details

Glorious day. Many people on the beach taking advantage of it. We only count going in one direction (COASST) as we are looking closely for dead birds and changes. There were likely more than 18 people, and we could see more in the distance, as this beach connects to Washburn Beach and there are a number of access points within a one mile stretch.
