Subject: [Maine-birds] Sandy Point Morning Flight, 10/22
Hi all,
For the second day in a row, it was an unexpectedly great flight passing over and through Sandy Point Beach, Cousin's Island, Yarmouth. Usually, a southwesterly component (beginning after 1:00am) squashes the flight here, but obviously, it did not today.

7:05-9:12
33F, mostly cloudy but clearing, WSW 7.3mph becoming SW and increasing.
