Sabine's Gull Clifton Court Forebay


Jerry Britten
 

Alerted by Sri Char who saw and photo'd two juvenile Sabine's on the Forebay earlier today, I went out late this afternoon and managed to find one.  Until today, last seen in 2016 in Contra Costa according to eBird, and the first record for the Forebay since 2007.   Seen out by the intake gates connecting Old River to the Forebay.  This is about a 9-mile out-and-back from the parking lot.
