Late day birding at Milford Point 8/1

Spent from 4:30 to 7 looking mostly on the Beach, south side, when heading to car noted the semis had mostly moved to the marsh and spent last half hour continuing to look to no avail.

Tide was just going out and birds were beginning to gather at my start time. I would say focus as much on the marsh as on the beach sooner than later. Since setting sun makes it hard to see later.
