Report Details

A blustery day on the beach today. No concerns or significant changes noted, but as I'm new to CoastWatch, I'm still taking note of the normal baselines. I spotted one Black Oystercatcher on the south end of the mile. Also noted a pair of Killdeer at the north end. Picked up a small bag of litter, notably marine versus land debris. Finished the mile watch just before the rain started to fall; thank you for the accurate prediction, NOAA!
