6/18, Peck's Mill Pond and Housatonic River, Stratford (6:45a)-
Peck's Mill Pond is the little pond near the intersection of the River Road and Main Street Putney in Stratford.  I've fished there since I was a little kid, and only recently started birding there.  The going is better during migration, obviously, but still a nice little spot.
This morning I noticed they recently made public access to the Housatonic across from the pond.  There is a sign saying 'Peck's Mill Public Access' in front of a small parking lot, which leads to a wooden bench overlooking the river.
