Long Island Sound Almanac: Entry I

This week at Milford Point and Sandy Point (West Haven) at least four pairs of piping plovers are setting up nesting territories. The areas have been fenced with "symbolic" string and post fencing with signs advising of nesting birds.

Oystercatchers at Milford Point are on three eggs as are the ospreys on the platform behind the Coastal Center. The spring nesting season is off to a good start!
