Bethany Reservoir closure (+ Glaucous Gull)

Hey everyone. According to signage, Bethany Reservoir will be closed for construction for the next two years, from May 2020 until at least Nov 2021. These projects tend to take much longer than planned, so it will likely be closed at least through the winter of 2021-22. 

The flock of a few thousand gulls on the reservoir this afternoon included a 1st-winter GLAUCOUS GULL along with all the common inland gull species. Also a pale, compact 1st-winter Iceland Gull that looks to be a KUMLIEN’S.
