      Wed, 14 Nov 2001 -- Dorothy Tobkin reports two ROCK SANDPIPERS among
      Surfbirds and Black Turnstones at high tide at Laguna Point on the rocks
      just north of the point.

      ========================================================================

      Laguna Point is possibly the southernmost location where Rock
      Sandpipers are reported on an annual basis. Nonetheless they can be a
      difficult find. They are most frequently encountered in the area extending
      from Glass Beach at the foot of Elm Street in Fort Bragg to the rocks off
      Ward Avenue in Cleone about 3 miles to the north.
      To reach Laguna Point turn west off of Hwy 1 on Mill Creek Road in
      Cleone. Follow it past Lake Cleone and under the bridge to the outermost
      parking lot. Walk the boardwalk to the observation platform at the end and
      scan the rocks nearby.
      A search of the archives at

        21 Dec 2002 -- Dorothy Tobkin reports four ROCK SANDPIPERS today at Laguna
        Point in MacKerricher State Park. They were close by on rocks near the end
        of the boardwalk. No binoculars needed. You cannot currently drive in from
        the main entrance nor walk in from Ward Avenue due to flooding of Lake
        Cleone. You must walk in from the south on the Haul Road from Virgin Creek.
