Beach Birds and Beach Cleanup

The Connecticut DEP is asking beach-goers to help protect piping plovers and least terns, rare birds that nest in a handful of locations along the Sound. The New London Day has a story that sounds like a DEP press release.

You'll probably get a chance to see both birds if you participate in Save the Sound's beach cleanup at Sandy Point, in West Haven. You'll also get a perspective on New Haven Harbor like no other. The e-mail announcement that came my way says:

Meet in parking lot across from Captain Galley's at 9:30am. Contact Sherill at or 203.354.0036.

Here are a couple of links to earlier posts about plovers, terns and Sandy Point.
