After visiting North Lake in Irvine with Mike Sanders we met up with Jeff Bray who was kind enough to point out in his scope initially the rare Franklin’s Gull on December 29, 2014. After a walk around the lake we were able to get closer views and fantastic shots. At one point while sitting near the chained linked fence, the Franklin’s Gull flew directly at my head and quick duck and one in air shot is on the photo link below.
Thanks to Jeff Bray for his assistance.
