Afternoon storms in the metro Detroit Area brought high winds to Pt Mouillee this evening. Water levels in the Humphries Unit was high enough to keep shorebirds away. Cell 3 is still dry, and only a flock of Ring-billed Gulls and Caspian Terns were making use of the open, bare ground.
Winds were blowing inshore, so waves were crashing against the shoreline as I rode along the dike from Roberts Rd to Cell 3. But a small patch of exposed sand held a dozen Sanderlings. The sun was shining so late afternoon / evening lighting was good enough to get some nice digiscoped images from about 50' away.
