Not just the coast Frank! I good size flock of Ring-billeds were hawking insects along the shoreline of the Thames River in Montville yesterday afternoon as well, and it's not uncommon this time of year to see them in shopping mall parking lots hawking winged ants as well.

And in Stratford at the Greenway / over Deluca ballfield, I too witnessed flocks of gulls (Ring-billed and Laughing) and Common Terns flying around, hawking insects.  This has pretty much been an annual event in lat summer along the
(western) CT coast.  In the past, I've been able to determine that the prey was swarms of winged ants.
