Here are some photos of the Mew Gull:
It was on the Housatonic River with a large flock of mostly Ring-billed Gulls. River Road, Southbury, just east of the intersection with Purchase Brook Road. The flock moves around quite a bit. At times the gulls have been feeding or roosting in the fields on either side of Purchase Brook Road at Mitchell Farm.
Please do not trespass on Mitchell Farm, or get out of cars on River Road west of intersection with Purchase Brook (signs posted to remain in vehicle).
Traffic on River Road can travel fast. Bring a scope and some eye drops, and maybe some Tylenol; it doesn't exactly stand out like a sore thumb.
