I took a short trip to Sandy Slough this afternoon (2-4PM).  Lots of good
shorebird habitat especially at upriver end of slough. A few hundred shorebirds
were present, mostly killdeer, pecs and peeps (least and semipals were all I
IDed). Hilites were 3 Ruddy Turnstones (in slough on south side of bridge, 2 in
breeding plumage) and 2 Sanderlings way down Sandy Slough road. Other
shorebirds: Semipalmated Plover (12), Spotted (1) and Solitary (3) Sandpipers.
Suprisingly no larger shorebirds (Yellowlegs, Stilts, Dowitchers, etc)were
present.
