I was at Hammo at the start of the storm and stayed until visibility got to near zero. 

Likely hybrid Tricolored x Little Blue Heron, 2 juv Little Blues, an adult Little Blue and a Snowy Egret with an injured leg at the Boulder pond, many Least Sandpipers both adult and juv, Semipalmated Sand., Semipalmated Plovers, Killdeer, four Lesser Yellowlegs, and about a dozen Laughing Gulls were in the East Beach area. Prior to the storm, several thosand Tree Swallows were working through the park.
