10/19  Stratford, Sikorsky Airport, 4:45pm - 93 Black-bellied Plovers (on the 
grassy areas feeding on worms), 25 Red Knots & 3 Dunlin (resting on the unused 
runway) during the rain and wind of this nor-easter.
We also visited many of the other Stratford coastal areas and were surprised at 
the lack of birds around; almost nothing on the harbor, nor on or over LI Sound. 
 There were a few Chipping Sparrows and a Palm Warbler by the new Animal 
Shelter.
