     12:30  Milford  - Harlequin Duck female,  Merwins Point  -  Seen well with Phil Asprelli when the duck came swimming into the cove from the west,  then landed on the beach in front of the Mallards where she began preening herself.  Also 12 Purple Sandpipers.

      1:25 to 4:00   Stratford,  Short Beach - 80 Snow Bunting, 40 Horned Lark with 4 Lapland Longspur.  Light morph Rough-legged Hawk seen well with Don Morgan.  Eurasian  
 Wigeon just off the beach.  Oak Bluff Ave - Drake Pintail in a pool on airport property, continuing west on Oak Bluff - 2 Snowy Owls in the marsh when looking north.   (Thanks Frank !)  I turned left onto the causeway  across the marsh and there was a hovering dark morph Rough-legged Hawk on the right, before the airport entrance.   In the airport - 10 Horned Lark with one Chipping Sparrow.
