A 75 minute (7:15-8:30) sea watch at Robert Moses State Park (from the dune crossing closest to the golf course) produced a nice showing of 46 Wilson’s Storm Petrels moving e-w, some fairly close to shore. Also seen was a single Parasitic Jaeger that harassed a Least Tern into giving up its catch, which the jaeger appeared to retrieve from the water. It then flew back back to the west. No shearwaters were seen.
