3 species (+1 other taxa) total
Calidris sp.

Maybe 2 juvenile LESA flying over the boat, though looks were poor, as were photos. Seemed like they might have been bigger, but photos seem to favor juv. Least a bit upon initial perusal, though Sanderling was floated as a possibility as well. These were right at the plotted coordinates for the checklist (at 3:16 PM). They were flying ~west, or WSW.

Herring Gull

Seen behind the fishing boat "Misty Dawn" (out of Cape May)

Great Black-backed Gull

Might have been as few as 6. 3 seen behind the fishing boat "Misty Dawn" (out of Cape May), and then a short time later, after we passed them, 6 GBBG hung around the boat for a minute or so after coming in from roughly the direction of that boat.
