117 Lesser Black-backed Gulls on Opie Road
The wet weather has dropped hundreds of gulls on Opie Road. Jeff Ellerbusch reports 1 Laughing Gull, 1 Iceland Gull, 117(!) Lesser Black-backed Gulls, 14 Herring Gulls and 500 Ring-billed Gulls. The gulls are mostly at the west end of Opie Road in the large sloped field. The 117 Lesser Black-backed Gulls obliterates the Somerset County record of 64 set on April 22. That total wiped out the previous county high.
