 Took some relatives to Back Bay NWR in Sandbridge yesterday (Saturday)  as 
part of trip to Hampton Roads area. Sanderlings and Dunlin were present in 
small groups.

There was an immature loon on the ocean side visible from the boardwalk trail 
leading from the visitor's center to the ocean. there were some migrant adult 
and immutarues there last month when i was on the Birds and Blossoms Festival 
trip.  I spoke  to the ranger and she agrred that is was a immature staying 
over possibly for the summer . some non breeding birds stay in wintering 
grounds for a year. i could not tell which species it was . ranger did not know
