I was treated to a spectacular Northern Gannett show this morning at Ceaser’s Bay Brooklyn, with well over 1000, actively fishing. They all seemed to stay north of the Verrazano Bridge and I verified that by checking several other spots north of that location.
The only other highlights of note from covering other Brooklyn Coastal sites were two Lesser Black-backed Gulls, a 2CY and 1CY (calendar year). Both observed at Coney Island Creek. Surprisingly, not a lot of Gulls at the usual loafing spots along the belt (Gravesend Bay). Some were just too far out to get a definitive ID on. Though I did look carefully, hoping for something of interest.
