Almost 100% of effort given to scrutenizing gull flock, with the (unsuccessful) mission of finding the county's first Lesser Black-backed. Still, gulling here was amazing and like nothing I have ever seen before at the forebay: 2-3k gulls roosting on the parking lot, with the rest not far offshore. Great viewing conditions. Attempted to throw bread to attract birds, but this mostly only attracted 100-200 Cali Gulls, some RBs and just a handful of herring, thayer's, and GW despite persistent effort. Very windy with strong westerlies during entire stay
