>From Frank Mantlik
7/26 Milford, Milford Point 5:15 - 6:30 pm (high tide)
- 1 WHIMBREL on sandbar  (though flushed when sailboat
glided too close) .  Also,
30 semipalmated plover
21 piping plover (17 juveniles)
6 American oystercatcher
2 ruddy turnstone
40 sanderling
3000+ semipalmated Sandpiper
1 least sandpiper (marsh side)
3 short-billed dowitcher
400 common terns
100 least terns
7 ospreys
and other usual species
It's the right time to find a stint or a curlew
sandpiper in with the flocks of semipalmated
sandpipers.  I spent much time scoping through them,
but couldn't find anything different.

7/25 Westport, Imperial Ave., Saugatuck River mudflats
at Grace Salmon Park at 7 am - 1500 semipalmated
sandpipers, 30 least sandpipers, 1 semipalmated
plover, 1 greater yellowlegs.
