San Elijo Lagoon Bird Walk 12/10/16

Hi everyone,

We had 30 people join us for the walk at San Elijo Lagoon on Saturday morning.  The weather was overcast with a cool breeze but we managed to see 70 species of birds on a nice mornings walk.  Unfortunately the 70th species was mentioned to me as I was readying to leave and I did not remember it by the time I parked my car.  I believe it was another gull.

Thanks everyone for attending the walk,

Dave Cowan
