I wish they all could be Californian............

Heermann's Gull

This Wednesday Dennis Atherton is coming over from Bolton to give us a talk about Californian Pelagics and Western Birding at Bangor Birdgroup.
 A rush flight to catch the last Pelagic of the season in the world famous North Pacific waters around Southern California,  after 26 hours with no sleep i then go on a bumpy boat to be stranded at sea for 12 hours looking for birds, And who said Birders are mad?  After checking out the sea birds I spend two weeks up and down the California coastline looking for all the speciality birding on offer, From the seas off San Diego to the Mountains of California and finally looking for the elusive California Condor in Santa Barbara, Condor Country.
