Frank Mantlik, with Larry Flynn
8/9  Westport, Cockenoe Is. (by boat) -  1 juvenile FORSTER'S TERN among the 
estimated 500 Common Terns and 30 Least Terns (some of the latter species still 
with active nests), 10 Am. Oystercatchers, 4 Willets, 12 Ruddy Turnstones, and 
other usual shorebirds.
We also searched mid-Sound waters off  Norwalk and Westport, and found nothing 
of note, except for the first juvenile Laughing Gulls (about 6) I've seen in CT 
this year.
