4/12 - Southport - Southport Beach -(11:45-1:00 in part with Neil Currie and Tom) 800+ BONAPARTE'S GULLS
When I first checked at 9:00AM today,there were about 50 gulls.Upon returning late morning,there was a small group on the jetty and a few close to shore as it was just after high tide.After fifteen minutes,birds began streaming in from offshore into 3 large groups totaling the 800+ number.Many,many birds with full hoods.Neil said he had never seen so many Bonaparte's with their hoods.An amazing sight! No Black-headed seen by us.
