Hi all, boating westward along the CT coast yesterday was quiet bird-wise, but Allison Black and I had an immature GREAT CORMORANT on rocks off Sachem's Head in Guilford and a ROSEATE TERN with 15 Common Terns on the large breakwater at the mouth of the Housatonic River.
ROSEATE TERNS were evident at Falkner Island, especially at the north end.
Interestingly, there were 3-4 GRAY SEALS hanging around Goose Rocks just west of Falkner. I don't recall seeing them last summer while looking for the Bridled Tern. Perhaps we can expect more summer Gray Seals in the sound as their numbers increase to our east.
