Sitting on a bench and scoping the marsh, I saw two Peregrines flush two small flocks of shorebirds of 20 birds each from the right corner of the AVCO lagoon. A short while later, a Baird's Sandpiper appeared on the remaing shoreline of a small grassy island in front of me as the tide came in. Earlier I was at Milford Point CACC and saw a Black and White Warbler just west of the building. The usual shorebirds were very scarce on the bars with a steady breeze blowing in, but the marsh at low tide held quite a few peeps.
