weekly miscellanea

Recent miscellanea include today's (26 June) apparent first-of-season southbound-migrant returning Western Sandpipers, with a flock of 15 alternate-plumaged birds at the saltworks. The long-staying (since at least mid-May) imm. Glaucous-winged Gull continues at the J Street mudflats. Yesterday, one of the immature Yellow-crowned Night-Herons continued in Del Mar, behind the Public Works. Still Black Oystercatcher and Ashy Storm-Petrel at La Jolla, but otherwise the overall numbers and diversity of seabirds offshore are relatively poor. On 23 June, a Peregrine Falcon near the Konyn Dairy near Escondido was rare inland in summer, and a Greater Yellowlegs that day at Safari Park was presumably a "fall" arrival.
