Tina Green and I were at Sandy Point around 3 - 4 pm and we had 3
White-rumped Sandpipers. We walked the long way out to the point and
they probably weren't visible from the usual access path that goes from
the left of the parking lot.

>From Jamie Meyers:
6/13/10 -- West Haven, Sandy Point - 7 American OystercatcherS, Seaside
Sparrow, Saltmarsh Sparrow (1 each), around 11:30 AM, appeared pretty
close to high tide Bridgeport, Harbor Yard - 2 Peregrine FalconS headed
towards the Sound during the Bluefish game

I don't know if 7 is a good number of oystercatchers at Sandy Point;
it's the most I've seen in one place in CT.  But I don't go down there
as often as many of you.  Lots of Least Tern activity in the enclosure
and not really that many Commons around.  Still a few Brant lurking
around on the outer spit.  I didn't see any knots or White-rumped
Sandpipers but the tide wasn't the best when I was there.

For those who may have read by article in the new Warbler, the Seaside
was a town bird for West Haven.
