More than 30 mid-sized, dead birds of what looked like the same species and one sea gull and one crow. Not too much sea plastic - I picked up some of it. Large burnt stumps and logs were rolling around in the high tide. Farther south, the ocean has removed the dune and some of the paths end in a sand cliff now.

We had big storms the past few days! On just mile 300 there were at least 11 deceased Cassin's auklet. All the locals were talking about it.
