Hi Folks

Somebody had to stand guard on the shore

Stratford, Lordship 6:30 to 10:30 Low Tide

Outside the loons, nothing was off shore. No terns in sight. A few  
groups of Cormorants on the flyby. No birds at the Airport. Most of  
the peeps were at Short Beach with some up river at the mouth of the  
marsh. I didn't find the Glaucous Gull, but best to look at high  
tide. There was a flock of about 30 Yellow-rumped Warblers in the  
refuge first thing, but little else.
