22 LAUGHING GULLS all flying west mix of immatures and adults. Certainly interesting to note this movement, which is, at least in my experience, substantial for June in Connecticut. Also flying west were 3 BLACK SKIMMERS and 1 LITTLE BLUE HERON. Additionally, there were large concentrations of feeding terns, many of which were carrying fish off to Cockenoe Island. Birding at Compo is always fun as dusk approaches, as one can get a good appreciation for the diversity of species that nightly head over to the Norwalk Islands to roost.
