8/18/11 - Old Lyme, Watch Rock Park - 5 FORSTER'S TERNS.  Old Lyme, Griswold 
Point - 1 BLACK TERN and 2 FORSTER'S TERNS.  Milford, Milford Point -1 
FORSTER'S TERNS and 4 SALTMARSH SHARP-TAILED SPARROWS in the spatina.  As 
Steve Spector mentioned, there were at least 5,000 shorebirds at Milford 
Point near high tide.  Hard to check them all!  Also, had an early female 
Northern Harrier hunting over Great Island in Old Lyme.  There seems to have 
been a push of raptors from the north based other reports.
