Toleak Survey Short Film

Here's a short video that shows our typical environment when we got to Toleak Beach to conduct our COASST beached bird surveys.

Toleak Survey

We’ve had a bit of unusual luck with the last couple of our COASST beached bird surveys on Toleak Beach in regards to the weather. Sunny clear skies have been on tap but that’s far from our ‘usual’ winter weather here in the Pacific Northwest.

However, our last survey was more typical of the weather we face in the winter. In this case, the pendulum swung to the far side and we had record breaking rains. The good news was that our Lance 1575 was out of the shop with our Lift Kit installed. It gives us a few more inches of clearance which is a relief when we boondock. Didn’t hurt as the campsite was underwater with the rains as well.

I grabbed some footage to share and take you along with a ‘typical’ collection effort.

We're back in the field collecting data for COASST. After being absent for 3 months we weren't sure what to expect at our beach and I was a bit intimated with the thought of hiking over Scott's Bluff once again.

I invite you to follow our updates from the field on twitter.
