Bridgeport, Ash Creek, Black Rock Harbor, Seaside Park 7:50 to 10:00

Lots of gulls about, there were bunches that looked like they were  
feed on items trapped in the shallows and there were a couple of  
clouds off shore. Most of the Laughing Gulls were in Ash Creek. The  
Scaup were in the little pond by St. Mary’s along with the  
Mergansers. All the shorebirds were in Ash Creek. The Willet was  
quite a surprise, It looked like a western.
