i  keep the tide charts for this area on my desk, watching for opportunities. sticklebacks move from fresh to salt water easily here in this area, and i see large schools in the brackish waters of the Petley small boat basin as well as in the barachois of Middle and lower lance coves.

I've only heard of sticklebacks making nests in freshwater, so it's pretty cool that you found one in salt water, even if a stream close by causes brackish water to form. Also, if there was either a full moon or a new moon that night, then the low tide would be the result of a spring tide, when high tides are higher, and low tides are lower.  (reply...)

That looks like a species of sulphur butterfly, possibly a clouded sulphur.  (reply...)

Thanks Elijah! The ultra low tide that day, allowed me to walk out further than usual. It was a bit of luck and a bit of observation that  caused me to wonder about a stickleback returning to the same spot, over and over again.
