The Sunrise Birding group and I (and a couple others) visited Stratford Point from 3:15-4:15. The number of gulls and terns were fairly small, but a flock of 300-400 Tree Swallows kept feeding low over the meadows and at times next to us. We could not locate the Harlequin Duck.
Afterwards, at Long Beach, Stratford, I found widely scattered feeding flocks of Laughing Gulls and Common Terns, stretching from Point No Point west to Pleasure Beach & Seaside Park. Alas, no large terns nor jaegers seen here either.

We haven't had any further sign of the jaeger nor the Royal Terns at Stratford Point. Things really died down around low tide. Some decent activity is starting up now though. The gates will be open this evening and in the morning in case anyone wants to check.
