Yesterday afternoon, 3/17, I again found the 1st cycle Iceland Gull still on the beach at Daytona Beach Shores. The warm weather has lots of people on the beach. In addition, the tide is high late in the day this week. That means that the people, bicycles, cars and the gulls are all competing for a much smaller beach. This is spooking the gulls constantly. Most are staying offshore. Also, remember that this late in the year, it is now happening much later -- beginning about 5:30 - 6:00 p.m.  and running until dark.
