It's about a mile from Cape May Point State Park, NJ eastward to Cape May City, and makes for a nice beach walk if you're in the mood for one. And I was, especially since a Roseate Tern was seen on this beach yesterday. That bird was probably storm-related, and unsurprisingly I didn't find it. But it was nice to check in on the beach nesters: many Least Terns, a few Black Skimmers and American Oystercatchers, including one oystercatcher chick, and a couple Piping Plovers. Three Common Terns were the only non-Leasts on the beach.
It was quite overcast with the dregs of the recent tropical low, and threatening rain materialized a bit in the form of scattered raindrops that had me worrying about my camera, but only a little - mainly because I'm about due for a camera body upgrade, so hey, if the rain wrecks my current one, that will just hurry things along.
