Notable Wildlife

4 birds, I think some kind of plover or turnstone, were clinging to the lower side of Battle Rock, just above the water, acting as though they didn't want to get their feet wet. One flew, revealing a beautiful black and white pattern on top of its tail. They had shorter bills that sandpipers, appeared all brown until lifting their wings to reveal white lower bodies.A few gulls in the surf at Dock Beach

Driftline Content

Wood pieces. small bits of plastic (not pellets), pieces of shell

Actions & Comments

Beach very clean; little or no litter, no kelp or dead birds or shells. A large amount of driftwood has accumulated this winter, especially around Battle Rock.

Not much trash and minimal people activity, especially given what a beautiful day it was.

During a brief respite from rain, I found the Port busy withdrawing a boat from the harbor.
