The past few nights have been better than average at the Lake Massapoag roost (gulls and ducks). *note: these numbers are represented by birds flying in to roost after sunset, in very low light conditions (Although the Common Mergansers are likely there all day.). A lot of patience and a good scope is necessary. I mainly view from the beach along the northern edge, usually on the side the wind is coming from. Unfortunately, the gulls have not been as diverse this year as they were last winter.
