This morning I drove through the Rockingham Park area and had over 125 Ring-billed Gulls roosting in the Sears parking lot. I didn't have a lot of time to pick through them and there appeared to be more coming in as I was leaving. While not that unusual, this IS the same spot where the Mew Gull was seen back in March...you never know!!! No Iceland's yet but my buddy Rocky should be back any day now.
Another highlight from this past weekend was a very unusual find at World End Pond - a Snow Bunting on the mudflats! Photos: https://flic.kr/p/21gg4fe - Like most of the birds encountered here on kayak, it allowed me to get quite close...it's also the 188th species recorded here. Also 2 Pectoral Sandpipers hanging around.
