Milford Gulls: Gulf Beach flock of 500- 1000 mixed gulls see plankton 
feeding south of fishing pier. Can't give you a goo species breakdown as 
they were too distant.  Also noted a few gulls  feeding in roks at 
waters edge. Also noted yesterday a good number -maybe 500 or so ? 
feeding over and around Walmart on the Post Road- there are also several 
fast food places in the immediate area so these are probably the usual 
dumpster divers.

Is there possibly a shortage of plankton this year or is it early for
