Jake Musser and I birded Sandy Point in West Haven from 6:30pm until it was
nearly dark at 8pm. Our focus was the tern flock. Gull and tern numbers
were spectacular.

Highlights:
1 Whimbrel
2 Bonaparte's Gull (basic adult and fresh juvenile)
800 Laughing Gull
1 Roseate Tern (possibly more but never saw or heard more than one at a
time)
4,000 Common Tern
20 Forster's Tern
