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.
