A quick trip to the Mitchell Sewage Lagoons turned up the following:
1 Juv. Stilt Sandpiper, 3 Juv. Baird's Sandpipers, 3 Pectoral Sandpipers, 
and 1 Juv. Black-crowned Night-heron.

Also present in fair numbers were Lesser Yellowlegs, Semipalmated 
Sandpipers, Spotted Sandpipers, and  Least Sandpipers.

The Mitchell Sewage Lagoons are located in the town of Mitchell west of 
Stratford. Take highway 8 west from Stratford to Mitchell, turn left onto 
Wellington Street, and left again on Frank. Park near the soccer field and 
walk in to the sewage lagoons behind the treatment plant. Most of the 
shorebirds were found along the fringes of the lagoons as the water  levels 
are fairly high.
