An hour at Sandy Pt (West Haven) just after high tide this evening had a
juv WESTERN SANDPIPER and an adult WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER. Terns were
feeding in the harbor, with about 175 Commons and 4 FORSTER'S TERNS.

Things have really slowed down at Sandy Pt over the past week, with
shorebird and tern numbers way down from earlier. This is typical of this
time of year, though it is nice to see some Common Terns hanging around
later than they have in recent years, undoubtedly the result of the
continued heavy surface fish activity in the harbor.
