Sorry for the late update. These numbers are from last Friday, 7/12. Overall, we have 35 pairs, 11 singles, 4 active nests, 48 chicks, and 5 fledglings!
Last week, we had dense fog during one of our surveys, so I know some birds were not seen but were still around.
It seems like birds are starting to move around as the breeding season wraps up. Some birds have moved on, while we are seeing new birds move through the area, using our beach as a stopover.
Our new least tern colony was surveyed last week, resulting in a high count of 67 adults.
