We couldn’t figure out why literally no large gulls and very few Black-headeds and Commons pitched down on the lakes. Normally, hundreds are brushing up in the water at any one time while the landfill is operating and there are even usually quite a few loafing around the lakes on a Sunday morning when there is no tipping. We did, however, notice at least six dead gulls... Other waterbirds were simply going about their usual business. Odd!
