I did a quick tour of LLC, Goleta Beach, Area K, Stork Field, and Devereux late morning. Didn't use a scope to properly check any of them. LLC is getting nicely full, but still well short of the overflow level. If the overflow pond actually gets full, then I will declare the drought over. Area K has lots of water as do the surrounding areas.
Gull variety was similarly disappointing to Ocean Beach yesterday with no GW, Herring, or Thayer's, and just a couple of hybrids. I didn't check the gull flock on NCOS closely, but there was nothing obviously good.
Area K and the surrounding ponds had a nice variety of ducks including 4 BW Teal. These were probably the most interesting birds I saw.
