I found this post on a bird watching site I follow:
I was birding in Gloucester yesterday when I encountered a woman at Eastern Point who had been swept off the jetty by a big wave. She’d made her way back onto the shelf alongside the jetty, and I was able to get her from there to safety, but it’s a useful reminder that many of the places we bird can be dangerous, and this jetty is one of them. In particular, it’s always a good idea to pay attention to the tides before you venture close to the water, especially in winter.
