8/19. Stratford, Short Beach, 9:10: - 10:30 am. I waded out to tidal flats at low but rising tide. Lots of terns and usual shorebirds, with highlights: 2500 Common Terns (many banded, maybe 10% juveniles), 7 ROSEATE TERNS (2 juveniles), 1 FORSTER'S TERN (juvenile), 1 BLACK TERN (juvenile). I searched unsuccessfully for a rare-in-CT Arctic Tern.

$20 car entrance fee for non-residents, but gate house not manned when I arrived shortly before 9:00am
