Has the bubble burst?

It might be tempting fate, but it looks like the recent run of ticks, for myself, has dried up. A solo trip down the Gower to try to catch up with the Thayer's and Kumlien's Gulls drew a blank. An adult Iceland Gull provided some compensation for an 8 hr stint. Gull numbers, however, appeared lower than the reports 1000+ from last weekend, so looks like it may have departed. There is however, a veritable feast on the beaches with thousands of shellfish washed up after the recent storms, keeping the couple of hundred gulls well fed.
