The same first summer LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL was back at Sandy Point this
afternoon on the falling tide, doing exactly what it was doing a couple
weeks ago...picking at the rocks of the jetty.

Shorebird & tern numbers:
Black-bellied Plover  2
Semipalmated Plover  3
Piping Plover  6     3 ad, 3 juv
Killdeer  1
American Oystercatcher  2
Spotted Sandpiper  1
Willet (Eastern)  1     adult
Sanderling  12
Semipalmated Sandpiper  125
Least Sandpiper  4
Least Tern  6
Common Tern  12     one begging juv

This was just before an impressive line of storms passed through the New
Haven area.
