Last Saturday, I was on the beach early. To my surprise, there were still a good number of Sanderlings, Ruddy Turnstones, a few Semipalmated Sandpipers and Red Knots. One of the Red Knots was banded and flagged with an orange flag. This bird had flown from Argentina. It was very thin but otherwise looked all right. Jekyll's beach is an international rest stop!
In the meantime, Wilson’s Plovers are still on the beach. I only found one chick this time. There were 2 other male plovers and one female…..Stay tuned.
