From Frank Mantlik with 5 others 
9/4. We took the 1:00 ferry from New London to Orient NY and back. No Seabirds, but highlights were:

CT:  1 FORSTER's TERN, 4 COMMON EIDERS.

NY: 1 ROYAL TERN, 7 BLACK TERNS in bay off Orient ferry dock, 1 PHALAROPE (probably Red-necked) seen being chased by a Laughing Gull near Plum Island passage, seen by Paul Wolter. Huge swarms (80,000?) of Tree Swallows over Orient, 1 Purple Martin.
