Wednesday October 30, South Holston Lake.                                    
Chad Beachy and I spent the entire afternoon looking for the Kittiwake that was 
seen two days in a row.
We glassed the lake from several angles and returned to the dam three times, 
and came up with negative results.
The only gulls seen were several each Herring, Ring Billed, and Bonapartes.
