6/28 Stratford, Dorne Dr., Short Beach Park, 4:50 - 5:40pm - 6 adult ROSEATE
TERNS, 300 Common Terns (saw only 3 non-adult), 148 Laughing Gulls, 1 BLACK
SKIMMER on sandbars (low-mid tide, rising). With numbers of gulls and terns
building here along the Housatonic River mouth, it's a great time to search for
even rarer species. (Shaibal Mitra has discovered Arctic Tern and Sandwich Tern
on Long Island, NY beaches in the past 2 weeks or so).
Note: There is an entrance fee for non-resident cars.
6/28 Westport, Compo Beach, 12:40 pm - adult Little Blue Heron, flying north
toward mainland (probably from Cockenoe Island), 100 Common Terns.
6/26 Stratford, Main St./Elm St., 3:30 pm - adult Little Blue Heron flying west.
