Subject: [CT Birds] Faulkner Island BRTE
From Rick Gedney:

Faulkner Island, Long Island Sound - FRI 8/11 - 6:00PM - Birding by boat.

Bridled Tern located on south west part of island. CT lifer for me. Had bird in the air 10’ over shore , upper tidal zone on dry rock and at shore in low tide zone. Managed a few fuzzy photos in the low sun and 2’-3’ chop breaking around the south point. Seas sat down a bit for the cruise home.

10 Larids on the trip - nice 2.5 hour cruise.
