Topic: Bonapartes Gulls - Bunker to Cape May

About 200-300 Bonaparte's Gulls were feeding in the surf along the Nature Conservancy beach between the Bunker and Cape May on Sunday.  Great show with some resting on the beach and others in and out of the water with the waves.  The storm washed up a half-mile of seaweed in which the gulls were feeding.  Also present were about 40 Greater Scaup, 30 scoter, 2 Horned Grebe, and perhaps 200 shorebirds (Sanderling, Dunlin, Ruddy Turnstone, and 2 Red Knot).   The latter were feeding in the same seaweed that attracted the Bonaparte's Gulls.
