Jones Beach West End

There was a report by a NYC birder of a Pectoral Sandpiper and possible calling from a Least Bittern.  I checked out the ponds where the birds were reported and found a previously reported Stilt Sandpiper and finally located the Pectoral.  No sign of a Least Bittern.  Also saw Short Billed Dowitchers, the usual shorebirds as well as an unidentified flycatcher - have to assume it was a Willow even though an Acadian was also reported recently.
