 Today while fishing in the sound off of Greenwich I had a Royal Tern hunting near the boat. Luckily I brought my binoculars so I was able to get very good looks. Earlier in the day I had two large terns flying in the distance but the boat was moving so I was unable to attempt an ID. Great Captains Island seems to be having a good year with many Heron nests. Fishing near the island I watched numerous herons and egrets flying back and forth. Also on the shore was a single American Oystercatcher and a Spotted Sandpiper.
