I went to Seaside Park and Beardsley Park this afternoon in search of gulls. Seaside Park held decent but spread out numbers of gulls (mostly Ring-billed Gulls), including one adult LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL. I scoped Long and Pleasure Beach, and noted even larger numbers of gulls.
I was able to relocate the TUFTED DUCK in the large Scaup flock off of Fayerweather Lighthouse. This flock also held at least six REDHEADS.
I was disappointed when I arrived at Beardsley Park, as I saw not a single gull. I was hoping to find a roosting flock gulls as I did earlier in January. I was however pleased when I saw four WOOD DUCKS in the fading light.
