County lifer! First seen skimming over east side of meer at 9:29. Seen silhouetted against the light from the lamp posts, but the oddly shaped bill and distinctive skimming behavior could be clearly seen. The bird then made a very close pass in good light, allowing us to see black overwing, white underwing and breast, white edge of wing, and white area on face just above bill. Seen briefly skimming many times after that, pointed wings and long bill visible. Seen until about 9:40. Previously reported by two others and the primary reason I came.
