Thanks Mark. Interesting post. Could you expand on the dates of all three of the earlier records?

Roy asked me to send this to the group.  It has to do with the number of records that exist for Thayer's Gull for CT.  To the best of my ability, the recent adult and 1st year at Windsor are the 4th and 5th records.  There is a record of an adult from the Shelton Landfill (David Sibley), a first year at Manchester ( Szantyr, Comins, et al), and a first year at Southbury (Housatonic River; Szantyr, Hanisek).  These three are accepted by the ARCC. The recent two (three???) have not been adjudicated.
