June grass update for Stallworth Public Access & Main THPSP Beach Access 6/17/12:AM
6-10 on the June Grass Grossness Index.
Wind and water conditions are much the same as yesterday, but perhaps the waves are a bit bigger.
Flies are starting to congregate at the beach but they aren’t biting yellow flies, they look more like small barnyard flies and are a bit annoying.
There is a lot of trash on the beach, being tossed up from the waves, so a beach clean up might be a nice family activity today. Picnicing, frisbee/any other beach sport, or building sandcastles could also be fun. Take Dad to the beach! Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there!
I saw 5 least terns and 1 Forster’s tern on the beach, a few brown pelicans, and a flock of snowy egrets. Please remember that dogs are not allowed on state beaches and must be properly leashed and permitted on beaches where they are allowed.
Shorebird nesting season is starting and sea turtle nesting season has already begun. Please don’t let your pet, or children, harass wildlife but rather enjoy them from a distance.
At the time this report was made the beach flags were yellow, but check them again before you head to the beach.
If there isn’t a current June Grass report up on this site I suggest checking the link to local beach cams on the left side of this page. They can often give you an idea of what the water is like. It is also important to “Know Before You Go” and check local beach flags. They are updated twice daily at 9:30am and 1:30pm.
PLEASE ENJOY THE BEACH RESPONSIBLY!
