Brendan forgot to mention a few other notable birds from midday Sunday, including:
 
At 14 Acre Pond, Norwalk-
6  Green Winged teal
8 American Wigeon
1 Gadwall
 
Sherwood Island S.P.-
4 Hooded Merganser  (FOS, 3 in Millpond, one in marsh)
4 Ruddy Turnstones
3 Horned Grebes
1 Common Loon
1 Common Tern
3 Forsters Tern (3 firmly ID'd, but there were many more terns far off to the east)
 
All of these last were seen from the end closest to Burying Hill beach- we were on the lookout for Gannets and hoping for Jaegers but had none.
