1/11, Old Lyme, OL Conservation Trust land , Lieuitenant River, WINTER WREN
Westbrook, Menunketesuck Flats, 35+ PURPLE SANDPIPERS
Also at Menunketesuck 150+ Dunlin, 6 Ruddy Turnstones, 5 Sanderling, 40 Black Duck.
Purple Sandpipers are not on rocks as we are accustomed to seeing them. They are feeding with dunlin on the gravel bars and it's pretty easy to lump them in with the dunlin,especially if the lighting is not good.
