Woods Reservoir--Brumalow Creek Franklin Co., TN 2015 Feb. 9 8:35-9:15am Cloudy, light rain I drove down to Woods Reservoir this Monday morning, looking for the adult LITTLE GULL that Mike Todd found. I'd been out to Reelfoot Lake 3 times in the past and missed the gull each time. At Woods Reservoir I first stopped at the pulloff on Morris Ferry Bridge Road where Mike first found the gull, but all the gulls that I could find were on the far side of the Reservoir and extremely distant. With the front coming through there was a mist and haze that made it extremely difficult to see anything but vague outlines. So I wound my way around the reservoir hoping that there was a closer viewing area to the gull flock. Fortunately, I found one at the end of Northshore Rd. where it is intersected by S Hap Arnold Dr/Pumping Station Road (depends on what map you have as to what it is called). The pull off and boardwalk view the mouth of Brumalow Creek as it enters the reservoir. I almost immediately got my life sighting of the LITTLE GULL, but it soon flew out into the reservoir and around the corner. After a few minutes it returned and circled around in the creek area to the left with many BONAPARTE'S GULLs for most of the rest of the time that I was there. Many thanks to Mike Todd for finding it.
