Anyone been out there lately? Went out today to check the waves and the entire area west of the rock pile and fence has been bulldozed by giant excavators and dump trucks. Looks like the moon big hills of sand and all the grass and bird area bulldozed. Also looks like the breech to the pond closed as well. 
 

All the years of fencing and being told keep off no room no driving protected area and its been totally leveled even the grass …. Wonder what reason they will give this year for completely closing it in May now that its wasteland

They're supposed to be dredging the inlet, although moving sand on Democrat shouldn't be a part of that.

 

Could be related to the Fire Island to Montauk boondoggle that the Corps of Engineers is beginning this year.  Maybe setting up a sand bypass across the inlet; I think that sand bypasses are a part of the project.

They're preparing the Cuomo memorial site so they can be really, really, really sure he's not a threat for President.

Thread is worthless without pics.

 

Backside drain at the jetty, looking south towards salt pond.  They knocked down the entire dune from the salt pond to the point.

From the front side, looking towards inlet.  You can see clear across to Sore Thumb and Oak Beach.  That is the flattened dune, appox 2 foot above the beach grade.

From the 'parking' area hill  at jetty on front side.

Only a matter of time until that all washes over, water was touching that dune a few times this season and now its gone.

Seems like a ridiculous amount of time and effort for 12? birds.
