There is nothing like a storm to introduce unexpectant birds to an area. With heavy rains and high winds sweeping up the east coast . . . I managed to get to Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth, Maine about a half hour before sunset.

The rain was pelting and the fog was heavy so it was a struggle to see anything. But after a bit of scanning I was surprised to see a half dozen Brants (rare) and a couple Lesser Black-backed Gull (first of the year).
