Milford Point (high tide) - 1 red knot, 2 willets, one appeared to be a juv
eastern willet, it was not much larger than the BB plovers. The other bird
appeared to be a western willet. It was huge! It was nearly as tall as the
oystercatcher and RB Gull that it stood next to. It also seemed to have a longer
I stopped by the stratford marina. The LB dowitcher appeared to still be present.
It was tucked and sleeping so I can't say that it was the LB for sure but it had
faded breeding plumage similar to the LB dowitcher that I saw there last week.
