Previous to this tide there were 600 plus Common Terns on this small sand spit with about 150-200 nest.
Damage may have already happened from almost as high of tides, plus severe weather the day or so before. I was not there to see that, so this is what I found.
Hopefully, they will renest somewhere else in a much safer place and do well.
Several warning signs also also lost to the tides and sea.
Plus this young American Oystercatcher, he or she also had a sibling that I missed in the photo.
Now take a very good look at this Oystercatcher, it has an inordinary amount of legs, eight legs in total!

Three chicks huddled in momma's feathers!
Do you see them?
Another AMOY chick along the shoreline.
This deer was very close to the above Oystercatcher chicks.
But something new has been added.
Mr. Osprey has a nest, I haven't seen the Mrs. but will keep an eye out.
Over to Goose Island, the Great Black-backed Gull chicks are running about.
They are quite a sight!
