I arrived at the Leete's Island Rd. marsh at about 12.  There were many small peeps, 1 Lesser Yellowlegs, and several Semi Plovers, but no Phalarope.  Among the peeps was a Baird's Sandpiper on some of the drier flats.  The Wilson's Phalarope flew in at about 12:15 and preened close to the highway for the next 15 minutes before getting back to feeding.  Many thanks to all you CT birders who sent along those updates on this most cooperative bird.
