>From Frank Mantlik, with Larry Flynn7/14, 2-3:30pm, L I Sound off of Norwalk, Darien, Westport - 10+ WILSON'S STORM-PETRELS, all mid-Sound with about half in NY waters and half in CT waters. As Larry predicted, they were all in relatively close proximity to working lobster boats, apparently feeding in the minor chum slicks created by the old bait bags. We found none closer to shore. Small numbers of the usual gulls were around, but we didn't see a single tern out there.
