Hi Folks

I ran into Mr. Shelduck today. He seems to be traveling west.

10/3	Milford, Silver Sands St. Pk.
10/10	Bridgeport Seaside Pk.
10/25	Westport Sherwood Is. St. Pk.
10/28	Norwalk, Calf Pasture Beach

????	Stamford Cove Is. Pk.

I also saw an interesting feeding behavior in a Herring Gull
It was an adult bird, and it was standing on the lawn.
It would stamp its feet for 5 to 10 seconds then gobble up 2 to 3  
earth worms.
This occurred for ten minutes.
The Ring-billed Gulls just walked about looking.

Later on in another park I started looking for this behavior in  
others. Most of the Gulls were just roosting. I did see two other  
Herring Gulls feeding the same way.
