There was not a lot of different species of shorebirds, mainly sandelings, with a few ruddy turnstones, and semipalmated plovers. We did find however, a juvenile piping plover and juvenile least sandpipers, with their beautiful rufous coats.

There were the usual species of gulls, great black-backed gull, herring gull, ring-billed gull and laughing gulls.

Next year, I am planning to make at least two trips down to Nickerson Beach, one in July and one in August so I can capture the different stages of life on the beach.
