Nasty weather apparently brought large numbers of gulls to Sandy Hook, for today there were an estimated 1,200 gulls on the North Beach where until recently only two to three hundred could be found.

As their numbers increase, so does one's chance of finding gulls that aren't Herring, Great Black-backed or Ring-billed. Tuesday I found an adult (Kumlien's) Iceland Gull in the flock. Today I found both white-winged species and a Lesser Black-backed Gull.

One of today's photos has two of those additional species in it; the other photo has the other species. I'll leave it up to you to sort through the gullage and find them.
