Jones Beach Coast Guard Area, Timber Point, Seatuck

After having unexpected free time, I took a drive down to Jones Beach West End  the sandbar at Jones Beach was the worst I've seen in a long Black Bellied Plover and a handful of sandpipers scattered around Short Beach.  The consolation was a single Whimbrel circling around trying to land - there were people "camped out" on the north side of the sandbar so I think that scared it off.

Timber Point had a few sandpipers on the gold course and Sea Tuck had a few Yellowlegs (and lots of mosquitoes)

Met up with Michael Zito to help him find the Buff Breasted Sandpiper at the "reverse J pond".  Got some good views...then checked out the swale and ocean shore - nothing noteworthy but still had a good time.
