At Harkness this morning, 3 Bonaparte's Gulls, a Common Raven, a movement of Blue-gray Gnatcatchers and a Gray Fox were the main highlights.
After work I birded around Shennecosset/Eastern Point/Avery Point in Groton.
Offshore Avery Point was an increasing number of Laughing Gulls (6-7 compared to just 1 last week).
Eastern Point Road Pond is finally down to the mud, and the sandpipers numbers are reflective: 24 Semipalmateds, 50 Leasts and 1 Spotted, including many juveniles. Also an immature Little Blue Heron and perhaps the most Great Egrets I've seen here: 26.
Shenny Beach Pond across the street was also somewhat low, but only had a single Great Egret.
