It was raining early, so I got to Terrapin around 7:30, and there wasn’t much to see in the marsh. A lone Bald Eagle flew over, and a Green heron called, but the only interesting photo opp was a lone cattle Egret in the big field near the parking lot. Later, it was joined by 7-8 more.
I decided to stop at Sandy Point to see what birds the storm might have brought in, and found a few Terns and Gulls, along with a small flock of Sanderlings. I usually drive right by Sandy Point on my way home, so I may have stop more often.

Most of the Cattle Egrets I see are at Terrapin.
I’m not sure why gulls, like this Ring Billed, seem to bathe.
This is an adult Laughing Gull.
These Sanderling also seemed to be bathing.
These seem to be Forster’s Terns.
This one is likely to be a Royal Tern.
