Summary:

A beautiful sunny day.  First time I have seen a Raven on the beach. It is good to see the Osprey with a fish.

Previous concern about near-by dredging has been helped by equipment problems. The company packed

up their trucks and left.  Small amount of garbage, picked it up, and disposed of it.
