Southport Survey # 236

The tide was rising and the water calm. Sky was clear with little  
wind. Off shore again nothing nothing was moving. The spot where I  
start the survey contains some pilings and a patch of beach was  
interesting. The pilings had most of the terns, and the Ruddy  
Turnstones, and the beach had the Sanderling. The. golf course was  
empty and all the gulls were hanging out on the beach. The ducks were  
at the mouth of Sasco Creek. Overall it was uneventful.
