From Geoffrey and David Newell:

Hello Friends of Uplands Park:  As promised, here is the list from today’s outing, including the Eared Grebe!  It was a great day on the beach!  Margaret, for your species list add a Pacific Octopus!  It was dead.  We found it on the beach further out on the point. We also found a native oyster shell.  Geoffrey and David Newell
