visited bottle beach with our friends and fine birders, doug reberg from canada and dan van den broek from portland ,twice today, at 1 for rising tide and again at 4-6 for falling tide and while there were large flocks of shorebirds with western sandpipers, semipalmated plovers, short billed dowitchers, and even a peregrine falcon taking a common tern there were no sightings of the sand plover or the redknot seen yesterday...a number of other fine birders there on and off all day with similar results..we left at 6:15 and carol ridell was still there, hopefully with better rarity luck!

...two elegant terns at float 21 area with thehundreds of marbled godwits in westport...

good birding and theres always tomorrow for a lesser sand plover...
