We can add to the negative reports for the Bridled Tern today. We kayaked out there and were there from 12 noon to 1:30 pm. There was a Black Tern roosting at the south end of the island and a juvenile and an adult Roseate Tern on the west jetty. We were pleased to see two adult ROYAL TERNS roosting on a rock at the mouth of Indian Cove (just west of Chaffinch Island Park in Guilford). They flew off to the west before we left.
We also saw three Western Willets at Menunketsuck Flats in Westbrook at low tide this morning.
