We went to Merwin Point in Milford this afternoon and were surprised to see
a long line of gulls surface feeding on the water of the LI sound, a few
hundred yards off shore. The line of birds stretched as far as we could see
and included waterfowl as well as gulls (black ducks, brant, and a few other
species). It seems a bit early for this annual phenomenon and with the warm
weather predicted for tomorrow and the week to come, we may see a lot more
of this behavior along the CT coast. And, of course, we may see some rare
gulls among the common species. Worth checking out!
