Mile 182 Report
November 4, 2012
It was warm today after three days of stormy weather and the sun was peeking out now and then so there were a lot of people on the beaches.
It was warm today after three days of stormy weather and the sun was peeking out now and then so there were a lot of people on the beaches. We spotted 7 dogs and 7 people, and only counted the vehicles at one access point. We had to use two access points due to the higher water in China Creek. Next time I will wear my rubber boots!We don't see much live bird life on this section of beach, but banded a Parakeet Auklet for COASST. He was a bit of a surprise. The wrack was sparse, mostly small wood with a small piece of plastic or styrofoam here and there, also a few sea palms.

21 people on the beach today. Continued erosion off the bottom of the cliffs.
As I entered the beach and walked toward China creek I saw a dead common murre in the wrack line.
Very Little in the wrack line today on the minus tide, small feathers, micro plastic and pieces of wood.
No issue to report, but a recently deceased sturgeon was near the top of the wrack line.
