We counted 33 Sooty Shearwaters at Cupsogue from 8:15-9:15, then two more at Shinnecock Inlet over 24 minutes, and three more plus two Manx Shearwaters from Triton Lane, on Dune Road, over 36 minutes ending 11:47.
The flight rate diminished after about 8:45 and visibility deteriorated as the clouds cleared and the sun rose higher.
