The fields between East Hampton and Bridgehampton (off Montauk Hwy and the back roads parallel to the highway) contained thousands of geese today. Several fields contained hundreds and the field to the east of Beach Lane had close to a thousand). Strangely, there didn't seem to be any snow geese or other rare species. The Beach Lane field also held a few mallards, black ducks and 2 northern pintail. There was 1 bonaparte gull (ocean side) and 1 ring-necked pheasant (dune between parking lot and pond).
