We had seen the Black-headed Gull from a distance on the way to the bunting. After some hot chocolate to warm up we stopped by the Lake again before leaving. The gull was nowhere to be seen at first and then suddenly appeared. Unfortunately, it was no late afternoon and with the near solid overcast skies the light was not great for photography, but I did get a few pictures.

Then it was off to Sean's for dinner with his family. January 2nd is the 75th Southern Nassau County Christmas Bird Count and Sean and I did it this year with his seven year old daughter doing her first bird count.
