Those of us who stayed at Watts Bar Dam until 3:30 p.m. still had no
luck in refinding the Mew Gull, but a nice consolation prize was a first
cycle CALIFORNIA GULL on the water above the dam, first seen from the Park
on the East side, then refound from the overlook on the West side and
observed by several of us. Not sure which County the bird was in.
The adult LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL found by Mort in the morning was still
present, as well as an additional third cycle bird above the dam.
Hopefully someone will be able to continue the Mew Gull search tomorrow,
it is likely still in the area, only hard to find among 10000+ gulls
working the dam.

As of 9 am there has been no Mew Gull spotted. There is at least one
Lesser Black-backed Gull that has been spotted repeatedly below the dam.
