A slow day in Stratford

Today I went to many places around Stratford, but couldn’t turn up much.  Besides one YB I did get great views of many Sea Ducks, which came very close to shore in many locations.

Long-tailed Duck

Highlights below:

Lordship Marshes: 1 Northern Harrier

Long Beach: Gadwall, huge flocks of Brant.

The Seawall: Very close looks at Long-tailed Ducks and Red-throated Loon.

Stratford Point:  Large flocks of Common Goldeneye (no Barrow’s), American Wigeon and Snow Bunting.

Snow Buntings on the roof of the Stratford Point center.

Milford Point: Dunlin, almost 1,000 American Black Ducks, mating Common Goldeneye.

Even for February it was pretty dead, but all the birds were out in the open and giving us time to look at them closely!
