Did some running around after work this AM...

Milford Point (7:30-9)-
500?+ Semi-palm Plovers and Peeps--constant movement the entire time I 
was there
1 GBBGU
Bunch of HEGU and RBGU (didn't bother to count)
4 Ruddy Turnstones
20~ Black Bellied Plovers on sandbar
Numerous Snowy/Great Egrets
1 Flyover Peregrine Falcon that caused quite a commotion with the hoards 
of swallows/martins.  The peregrine definitely had a bird in it's talons 
yet was continuing to soar...seemed odd.

Hammo (9:40-11:30)-
Moraine Trail-
Juvie Tricolored Herons continue
Numerous Semi-Plovers/Peeps
King Eider continues off the end of the trail
There was also quite the tern show off the end of the trail

Rocky Hill Meadows (12:45-1:30)
A couple of barn swallows and a single killdeer.  Don't know where all 
the birds went....bad time of the day perhaps?
