Report Details

For being after a busy weekend, the beach was relatively clear of trash -- just a little more appeared to have been blown in around Kyllo’s/D River (north side of river). "Dirty" foam -- I’m by no way an expert, but it appeared that the dirty part was organic in nature. It didn’t appear to be oily and if you really looked at it, it had a "seaweed color."

Notable Wildlife

Lots of Birds : Many (100's) "sunbathing" on the top the buildings along the beach. 80-100 Gulls playing in the D River with 20-30 leisurely walking on the beach near Kyllo’s. They weren’t too disturbed by human presence ... they just bounced off to the side as I walked by, then continued with their gull life after I was gone.

It was very noticable since I surveyed in october that the "D" river was flowing straight into the ocean.
