Stratford, Long Beach: the Long Beach (White-winged) Gull continues.

Flying over 95 at the Short Beach exit in East Haven- 1 Black Vulture

a large Peregrine Falcon standing on a light pole at the rest stop  
about a mile east from the Vulture on 95

Guilford, West Woods TRail marsh/lagoon- 50 plus Green-winged Teal,  
pair NORTHERN SHOVELERS, 9 Snowy Egret, 5 Greater and 2 Lesser  
Yellowlegs, 1 Pectoral Sandpiper.

Madison, Circle Beach, 1 banded Ring-billed Gull. New bird to the  
beach, blue band from the Univ. of Quebec, Montreal. Many Osprey, 1  
standing in the shallow water off the beach taking a bath.

Off Green Hill Road over the Hammonasset River at the Killingworth  
line: the Osprey has returned to its favorite perch above the bridge.  
Looks like they have stocked the river with Trout.

There are still plenty of Gulls along the coast if anyone is still interested.
