Hi Kirry,
Yes there are plenty of shorebirds to see at the sandspit. There have been >500 
Pacific Golden Plovers amongst all of the other shorebirds too. The Common 
Gull-billed Tern has been seen in the past week I believe and within 2 hours 
drive of the sandspit the Aleutian Terns are still around up at Farquhar Inlet 
(2 birds reported from Wednesday anyway).
You need to time your visit to the sandspit though. Between 2 to 3 hours before 
and/or after high tide is best.
