After making a quick stop along the road to scan for waterfowl (picked up scaup, swan, and others), we walked the boardwalk, checking the wetlands and various ponds as we went, then walked down along the dunes and spent a good deal of time photographing oystercatchers, Purple Sandpipers, and Ruddy Turnstones that were on the jetty. Cold with strong gusts.
