1/5/13. Stratford, Sikorsky Airport. At 4.30 pm today was able to video a very aggressive adult male American Kestrel attempting to steal a meal from an immature Merlin on the grass at the airport. The Merlin prevailed and finished off the small bird (only the tail was recognisable). Also 21 Horned Lark, but no Longspur.

1/5/13. Stratford, Long Beach Boulevard, Warehouse Pond. As Frank reported the immature White Ibis flew in at 5.05 pm. When I left there were 4 Great Egrets roosting with it. Black-crowned Night Heron flew out into the marsh.
