Miscellanea (all of it relatively minor, unfortunately!) from the past few days includes a Reddish Egret at J Street and 17 Wilson's Phalaropes and 30 summering Eared Grebes at the salt works (end of 13th) on the 22nd; and continuing Redhead and 3 Cattle Egrets and a very-rare-in-summer male Blue-winged Teal all in the Dairy Mart area on the 24th. Finally saw ONE Surf Scoter in the Imperial Beach/Coronado area.... Continuing over-summering shorebirds include 6 Ruddy Turnstones, 9 Red Knots, and just 3 Western Sandpipers; but returning migrants so far include just the expected Marbled Godwits, Long-billed Curlews, Willets, and Wilson's Phalaropes.
