Subject: [CT Birds] Curlew sandpiper, yes at Milford Point after sunset
For those looking, the curlew sandpiper was seen after sunset at Milford Point, associating with scads of other small shorebirds, on the sound side of the sandbar. High tide was around 6:30 pm, and at that point only a few birds were present along that stretch of beach. A couple of hours later, with dusk approaching, and the tide continuing to fall, wave after wave of shorebirds flew in from the distant breakwater, where they had been seen roosting for hours. So it's best to factor in the tide if you're planning to look for it, especially a falling tide. Good luck.
