10/21, Old Lyme, Ferry Road, DEP pond, AMERICAN PINTAIL female
Other ducks in pond were 50+ Green-winged Teal, 30+ Mallard, 15+ American Black Duck and 3 American Wigeon.
Pond is located behind the Marine Region DEP buildings at the end of Ferry Rd. Drive through the DEP area to the last building in back. Another viewing area is as you are leaving, just past the driveway to Old Lyme Dock Marina, there is an entrance on the right. There is a sign there that says something like, DEP Vehicles Only. This location also has a small heron roost in season.
The pond is also one of the few places that I have seen Spotted Turtle in warmer days.
