4/5 Stratford, Short Beach (Dorne Drive), 5:40-6:30pm - 4 LITTLE GULLS (Stefan Martin, others & I counted 3 basic-plumaged adults plus one 1st-winter) among about 300 Bonaparte's and 5000 Ring-billed Gulls. They were on the water and on the beach, apparently all resting from the relentless west wind.
Add to this the dark-headed adult LITTLE GULL seen earlier by many off the Lordship Seawall. That makes at least five birds today. Photos of the 1st-winter were obtained.
