Hammonasset at 8:00 am this morning was dead!! Only 3 Kildeer and 3 B  
B Plover fly by! Only thing of interest were 3 Little Blue Herons (1  
adult- 2 white juv.), 2 Glossy Ibis, and good numbers of Laughing  
Gulls. Other than that it was absolutely quiet! Although the Park is  
(was) full of puddles.....maybe in the morning??

Milford Point was about as dead as it could be at this time of year, today
at high tide. Likely partially due to a couple of roving Peregrines
wreaking havoc, but the place was just quiet and there were clearly very
few shorebirds around. There were about 150 Common Terns feeding around the

This was surprising to me given that today's (and tomorrow's) weather is
typically the type that results in good local shorebirding. Perhaps other
locations were better.
