Report Details

Lovely days for November, observations over four days - many people enjoying the beach with dogs, upwards of 200 on Friday. No wildlife likely as a result of the busy tourist weekend. Sea gulls enjoying a brackish pool were the only critters. Dog fecal matter was seen left behind by owners and one owner pretended to pick it up. Trash cans were not being emptied - maybe because of the holiday. Clearly the large driftwood logs had been involved in fires but it was impossible to tell when. Very little litter and only a few areas of microplastics. High tide was up to the grass on Friday mid-day.

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.
