On Jan 4 while searching for the Snowy Owl, I found a dead COMMON DOLPHIN in Stratford along the beach west of Stratford Point. I had walked east from the foot of Cove Place. Photos taken and submitted to Mystic Aquarium's Marine Mammal Stranding unit confirmed the ID. They had sent a volunteer to photograph, measure, and examine the carcass.
Once about 4 winters ago, while riding the New London-Orient ferry, I photographed a small pod of Common Dolphins off Orient, NY - also in Long Island Sound.
