Thank you so much to everyone who joined us for this first trip of five from Virginia Beach! A big thank you also to Ned Brinkley & Todd Day who helped us lead this trip. Next weekend is full, but we still have space on all of our January trips.
We saw Northern Gannets, Great Black-backed Gull, Herring Gull, Ring-billed Gull, Laughing Gull, Bonaparte's Gull (several thousand), and Lesser Black-backed Gull (nearshore). We also encountered Red-throated & Common Loons plus one Great Blue Heron. -Kate Sutherland
