Yesterday around 6 I watched an Osprey carrying something big along the 
shore at Mc Cooks point in Niantic. He dropped it on Crescent Beach...He tried 
a couple of times to pick it up but then he flew off so I ran over to take a 
look and it was a big flounder 13-15 inches in length.  He had pecked the 
head presumably to kill it but otherwise it was whole. 

What an amazing catch. I felt bad for him that he had lost it...
