At 0615 this morning, I relocated the adult Ruff at the mouth of French Creek. It was on the Marina side of the creek, just below the Pub. At about 07:30, it flew back to the pond at the end of Admiral Tryon Blvd. It was still there when I left at about 08:30.
The peep migration must be peaking now. There were good sized flocks of Western and Least Sandpipers all along the shoreline near French Creek this morning. I did not see any unusual shorebirds with them.
