Has there been more around the SW Jersey area this year? Or are we hitting the areas right this year? I admit I haven't hit Florence much at all the past 5 years or so. And then I hit it back in January and wow! I thought that area was a goner when the landfill across the river started closing.
I think the gulling along the river areas here is starting to pick up again? Whatever is going on, its still a matter of finding a good flock to work. In Camden last year I did fairly well at the Gloucester Park. And now a new spot for scanning. I don't know the name of it, but it is in ebird. Mike Pasquarello started it off with an Iceland, Anne Reeves came along and found another.
These areas are time of day and tide based though.
