Two Mile Beach: Harlequins, Eiders, Gannets et. al.
George Myers reports: "Karl Lukens and I walked Two Mile Beach out to Cold Spring Inlet. Two Harlequin Ducks were in the surf at the tip of the far jetty. Also 220+ Northern Gannets headed south. Fifty Black-bellied Plovers, 3 American Oystercatchers, several Great Cormorants and a number of Ruddy Turnstones were on the jetty. From Poverty Beach we were able to see 9 Common Eiders but were unable to pick out a King."
