I’ve seen large numbers of Silver Gulls roosting at the new park at the north west end of Commonwealth Ave Bridge. They have been there sporadically in the evening over the last 12 months or so.

Hi Chris,

I don't know what Spinnaker Island is but there were hundreds on the lake September 1st or 2nd just near Commonwealth Ave Bridge.

After an initial _expression_ of interest during early-mid August 2018 in breeding on Spinnaker Island the Gulls lost interest and have not been seen around the island since 24 August. They appear to have left the area with very few around Lake Ginninderra or Lake Burley Griffin.


Has anyone seen any large concentration of Gulls recently? I would like to find out whether they have decided to breed locally elsewhere or whether they have left the district.
