 From Alex Burdo and James Orrico:

Ash Creek and St. Mary's
There were very large numbers of roosting gulls as well as offshore  
feeders at this location, but nothing unusual. It was divided up by  
about 75% Ring-billed, 25% Herring.
Other species included:
2 Brant
17 Red-breasted Merganser
75 Mallard
50 American Black Duck
16 Bufflehead
12 Hooded Merganser
3 Canada Goose

St. Mary's Pond included much of the same

Captain's Cove
Again, many roosting gulls at this location with about the same ratio  
plus 2 Great BB.
2 Canvasback
2 Hooded Merganser
1 Red-throated Loon
12 Mallard
50 Scaup, a large decline in number-about 65% Lesser to 35% Greater.

At Long Beach the GLAUCOUS GULL continues, feeding just offshore with  
many other Brant and Gulls.
