I spent about 2.5 hours watching the waters off Stratford Point with some of that time spent checking the upland areas and doing some other work. Waterfowl movement was basically constant with a good number of birds beyond scope range.
From Scott Kruitbosch:
11/22/11 - Stratford, Stratford Point -- 1 RAZORBILL heading west around 10:10 am, 3 NORTHERN GANNET, 2 SNOW BUNTING, 57 WHITE-WINGED SCOTER, 3 BLACK SCOTER, 29 Surf Scoter, 26 Surf/Black Scoter, 49 Red-throated Loon, 32 Common Loon, 2 Long-tailed Duck, 2 Bufflehead, 3 Common Goldeneye, 7 Red-breasted Merganser, 49 Brant, and more. Also 1 Great Egret feeding between us and Short Beach and 1 Northern Harrier hunting the site.
