Little Gull at Atlantic Beach, NC

This morning I saw an adult Little Gull not far off the end of the
Sportsman's Pier at Atlantic Beach.

There were very large numbers of Bonaparte's Gulls (thousands, but not
concentrated into dense flocks) from Fort Macon to Atlantic Beach, feeding
from the surf to about 1/2 mile offshore).

Also many Red-throated Loons on the water, and a steady stream of northbound
Red-throateds as well.

Ocean was slick calm (would have been a nice day for a pelagic trip!).
