4/9. Fairfield. Shoreline at Sunken Is. (2143 Fairfield Beach Rd) east past Penfield Reef (foot of Lighthouse Trail) and further east to Penfield Beach/Pavilion: Thousands of plankton-feeding gulls (majority large gulls-Ring billed and Herring, 400 Bonaparte's ), Brant, Greater Scaup, and lesser numbers of other waterfowl. Searched area for 1.5 hours. Something rare such as Little Gulls are probably out there, but not that I could find. Bitter cold windchills continue.
