Observed during low tide on a very windy, very rainy day. Wind blew so hard I could lean into it and it stood me up. Saw no other people and the beach appeared clean and unchanged although observations were difficult to make.
Cloud Cover: Rain. Wind Velocity: Storm. Wind Direction: S.
Cars/trucks parking: 2.
Noted a bald eagle flying overhead fighting the wind. It was that windy.
Total dead birds: 1. Saw one dead common murre on mile 287.
All Mile 288 Reports
There were 6 or more plovers and large accumulations of driftwood (both along the base and on top of the foredune cutbank).
It was great to see two separate families picking up beach trash/debris in the driftline from the most recent storms including in Mile 288!
There was clear indications of active foredune erosion with visible cutbanks (see photo) and significant debris.
