Three aerial photographs of Forsythe’s Holgate beach, taken July 2010, November 2012 (one month after Hurrican Sandy hit), and January 2020, show the progression of vegetation before and following the super storm. The extreme overwash, in picture two, has since settled into a sandy expanse, free of vegetation and primed for plover foraging. (Courtesy of Virginia Rettig)
