Overcast, chilly (mid to upper 20s), windy from the southeast. I checked the beach, Dunes, peripheral plantings, Magic Hedge, Butterfly Garden, scanned Lake Michigan from the base of the fishing pier, and checked the north and south sides of the harbor. Noticeable Influx of Common Mergansers. No concentration of gulls at the beach today, probably because the shoreline is starting to ice over, Otherwise, little of note.
