3/16/13 - Large number of Gulls west of Long Beach as seen with Patrick.
Hard to estimate these numbers. With the Gulls feeding on top of the water
were Brandt, Black Ducks, Common Goldeneye etc. Also, one adult Northern
Gannet resting on the water at the first jetty left of the entry toll booth.
Two American Oystercatchers continue at Milford Point.
