Blue skies, windy. Very busy with beach goers on this sunny day, with most beaches and flats occupied by noisy boaters, which probably made for unsettled terns and shorebirds. Walked out boardwalk to spit. Hoping for some Dorian terns moving S or a Plymouth Ringed Plov, or at least my hugely overdue Plymouth Western Sand. I got two out of three I guess, plus a 100% ratio of unexpected:expected passerines. LEPS: cawh 2 clsu 1 cobu 1. See ODES cgda 10 Swamp Darner 1

    Comments: *rare and high count, up from four seen here yesterday by Lisa Schibley et al. (age?); 8 adults, 1 juv today apparently a high for county, surpassing previous high of seven ( ); likely part of ongoing phenomenal of Hurricane Dorian displaced coastal terns (Royal, Gull-billed, skimmers) drifting south from Atlantic provinces; ph

    Comments: *rare; juv; presumably a migrant since I have not heard of breeding here and since habitat a bit atypical. Flushed from edge of dune path along margin of phrags that connect to marsh and then flushed once more as I tried to confirm ID. Almost got away since I could not refind where it landed but some ‘tup’ calls brought it back and it flew in along marsh edge allowing diagnostic digiscopes; welcome county bird
