Hi all, 

Over the past 10 years or so, expansive blue mussel beds have been forming off the sandbars off Milford Point. During the Big Sit, we noticed a few white-winged scoters diving in area above the beds. In recent winters, scoters have been seen in good numbers off of Stratford Point, and It will be interesting to see if these flocks discover and begin to frequent and feed in these developing shellfish areas.
