Cleanup Day 2

Breezy was very breezy today with gusts whipping through at 52 mph. This would normally be a nuisance but it helped push the debris toward our pile. Despite the wind it was warm with a high of 62. Upon arrival we saw two black brant in the pond along with the usual yellow-rumped warblers. Here's Tony looking especially curmudgeonly on the "east pile," which comprises about a third of the wood we've extracted.

And here's the view from the Rocky Point dune. The wind had subsided by then.

  1. Wonderful photos. Looks like you've done a great deal in the few days that you've been out there. I look forward to helping out this week and seeing the Manhattan and Coney Island skylines at sunset!!

    (I can't wait to see this place when the shorebirds, crustaceans, and little mammals return.)
