Description

Rushed out from under the Boardwalk as I started raking above it. Seen clearly from about 10ft away for roughly 30 seconds. Longish decurved bill, gray cheeks, ruddy flanks, small, flicked its tail as it walked.

Phone video taken but you can't make out any details other than general size and color and some movements.
