For some reason I headed to Point Pelee this morning. I should have been there 24h earlier when an apparent Royal Tern was sitting on the Tip! I heard about it this morning when I arrived. The original observers were there first thing.
There was a strong easterly wind and gulls were everywhere. There were very few Bonaparte's, unlike last weekend, but other species were present. Most were Ring-billed, but lots of Herring, some Great Black-backed and several Lesser Black-backed. In fact there were at least ten (10) Lessers around, and certainly more.
Four were older birds, but the rest were immatures.
Only a couple of Caspian Terns made an appearance. Not much else in variety.
I did not check other parts of the park since it was very windy, gloomy and too many people!
