A Northern Gannet just passed by Stratford Point heading west towards Long Beach. Also had our FOY Eastern Phoebe here this morning.

Many gulls flying back and forth by the point. Duck numbers are dwindling - few each of Mallard, Canada Goose, Mute Swan, American Black Duck, Gadwall, American Wigeon, Common Goldeneye, Scaup sp., Surf Scoter and Red-breasted Merganser were seen earlier this morning. A single Red-throated Loon, several Double-crested Cormorants and decent-sized flocks of Brant and White-winged Scoter just flew by off-shore.
