A busy Coronado beach

Lots of birds enjoying the quiet central Coronado Beach this morning. Two big groups of ~90 surfbirds each, feeding at the waterline, accompanied by a good handful of red knots, a few willets; about 25 godwits keeping to themselves. Two groups of ~15 royal terns, with a few elegant terns causing trouble at the edges of the group. ~200 sanderlings strewn all along the surfline. A group of 15 scoters off the (shuttered) Hotel Del rocks, and a couple of rafts of bright white dots way out at sea. No fulmars. A 'rare' day with about 300x the usual avian population.
