Hi Folks

Low Tide was at 2:00 so I took a look at Southport Beach.
There were 150 Bonaparte's Gulls and 2 Black-headed Gulls.
The Black-headed Gulls acted like a pair, one moved three steps and  
the other followed.
The birds had "winter" heads.
No Sign of a Little Gull.

I have this speculation, that Bonaparte's Gulls prefer to come to  
shore on an afternoon low tide compared to a morning low tide.
On the 14th to 17th there will be a morning and an afternoon low tide  
to test this.
