The bird was last seen sitting on a spit with a flock of turnstones near the windsurfer parking lot off Admiral Tryon Blvd HERE. It flew around 7:15pm and was not relocated by sunset, despite multiple observers looking.

The bird was not relocated thus far on Sept 10th.

This is the 15th record for BC.
