Subject: [CT Birds] Mud at Mansfield Hollow
Mud has finally begun to appear at Mansfield Hollow Lake in North Windham. In the last couple of days , there have been several Least and Semipalmated Sandpipers working the mud Long with the local Spotted Sandpipers.
The Killdeer numbers are building on the Airport side of the dike as well
A bonus this morning was a flock of 22 Short-billed Dowitchers flew over the commuter parking lot heading south. I assume they came off the mud after being forced down this morning by the heavy local fog.

For those unaware of this site, it is accessed from the commuter lot on Route 6 in North Windham east of Willimantic. The EBird hotspot is called Mansfield Lake/Airport Trail.
