I saw the White-tailed Kite for about 30 seconds Thursday evening from outside the fence. I had a nice view of him hovering, ready to to pounce., then he disappeared. I couldn't figure out how to access the beach at first. I waited with a small group until approximately 7:30 pm with no further views of the bird. On the way back to the parking lot, we had a great, close view of a Whimbrel flying along the beach.
I had every intention of getting a few hours of sleep, getting up really early, arriving in Stratford at dawn the next morning. That didn't work out, and I got there after 10:00 pm. I didn't see the Kite, but we had an unexpected visit from a Prairie Warbler who rested on the wire for a moment, then disappeared. I left the Point about 12:30 as I thought we might have a storm.
