Word must have gotten out of some good eats off Stratford Point. There is a growing flock of plankton feeding gulls just off the point. I did a quick scan and didn't find anything unusual, but there are about 1,000 gulls with more coming in every moment. I probably won't have time to scan them much, but if anyone is looking for some plankton feeding action we have it here.
Other highlights, a Snowy Owl earlier eating some sort of duck, perhaps a female Mallard and a small flock of Horned Larks.
