> I received photos today of a Long-billed Curlew that was photographed by USFWS staff near the lighthouse at South Monomoy on the 31st. They apparently saw one on the 28th, then three on the 31st, when they got photographs of one of them. The photographer was Robert Finer from Monomoy, and Karl Reinhold of Mass Audubon was also involved in the first sighting on the 28th. Wellfleet Bay runs weekly birding trips to South Monomoy on Wednesdays into September, but it looks like the next two trips are both full, unfortunately.

> A visitor reported a possible Ruff in the Salt Panne at the sanctuary in Wellfleet yesterday but I have not been there to check on it nor have I heard anything since.
