Hi Folks

I was specifically looking for Brant along the shore and kept track  
of other species along the way.  The main points were : plenty of  
loons scattered along the coast. The Red-breasted Mergansers were in  
flocks. The Great Cormorants were a surprise. They were in the  
Roayton part of Norwalk. The surprise part was that this is only the  
second time this fall. In the past they were seen about half the time  
at this time of year.


Darien was also covered but contained nothing to report. There are  
few sites to observe the Sound.
