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.
