This storm is turning into an impressive one! Winds have been strong
from the east all day, and this should continue through the night with
a possible shift to more NE tomorrow morning. Right now the LI Sound
buoys are recording a steady wind at 35-45mph with gusts well into the
50s and I've seen as high as 67mph. The wind is strong & prolonged
enough to blow a seabird or two into Long Island Sound. Possibilities
at this time of year include Black-legged Kittiwake and Razorbill, and
rarer alcids such as Thick-billed Murre and Dovekie. Maybe CT's first
Common Murre is out there somewhere.
If you're motivated to get out tomorrow, be sure to check Long Island
Sound including sheltered coves for storm-blown birds.
