8 total hawks including 4 lazy, on-the-deck Peregrines, in 4 intermittent coverage hours of rain, drizzle, fog, haze, clouds, gusty SSW winds. Also, 1 Gr Yellowlegs and 2 uber-scruffy imm YB Sapsucker. Gulls moved steadily E to W but I'm afraid I didn't get a good count on them.
A dozen Monarchs and a couple dragonflies still linger.
We're at peak season for this coastal site. After this rain clears tomorrow, there should be a good hawk flight this week, on moderate northerly winds.
Really, really strong NW winds would be ideal, but beggars can't be choosers.
