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
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.
Juvie Tricolored Herons continue
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?
