A photograph of seagulls flying off Trott Island in Kennebunkport, Maine. Trott Island is one of the twelve islands protected and maintained by volunteers of Cape Porpoise. The names of the islands derive from the early settlers that built homes there during the Revolutionary War, such as the Trott family. Benjamin Trott and his wife moved to Kennebunk in the late 1700s where they settled on Trott Island.
