Marina owner, Paul, welcomes public access for birding.  This marina is 
situated on Bentley Creek outflow.  Bentley Creek is reclaimed 
"brownfield" that was dredged and restored by Pfizer and City of New 
London working with DEEP.  Birds have returned and are enjoying the 
cleaned up habitat.  Ideal leeward protection during recent storms. 
Located south side of infamous "eminent  domain" Fort Trumbull 
neighborhood.
