Cloudy; Rain; E@5mph; Visibility good; Seas light; Tide near high falling to near low rising. Spent the first 90 minutes at the cove area, then about 90 minutes at RPS (most of the time with S.Arena), then returned to the cove area for the remainder of the time. Good numbers of BOGU continue and the largest numbers of terns so far this season; no pronounced directional movement with birds moving in both directions at various times, so it was hard to get a good handle on the numbers.
