At the Thames River on Poquetanuck Cove yesterday for a couple hours in the afternoon, one Great Blue Heron crossed the river. Over a hundred gulls were flocked with a small number showing their fishing proficiency. Nothing unusual seen in the gulls and many were textbook examples of first and second winter plumage. Fifty ring-billeds, fifteen herrings including a couple resident with variation, a handful of greater black-backed. In the nearby mute swans there was a dark juvenile among the adults mixing with gulls and more than five imm. across the river. Six goldeneyes, eighteen buffleheads, two hooded mergs, one kingfisher, thirty-five double-crested cormorants, one kingfisher. I probably missed some across the river on an overcast afternoon.
