1/8 Fairfield, Penfield Reef

2 suprises this morning:

The resident Peregrine Falcon made an appearance on the reef, spooking at least 300 gulls into the air--tried to catch a starling but failed---then attacked a Herring Gull which was almost the size of the falcon! (It didn't work)

Also, I finally saw my first Scaup of the season in a massive flock of about 250 by the reef.
