The Slaty-backed Gull was still present at 3:15 this afternoon Nov 26, at
the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre south of Pembroke.

At 3:00, all the gull took off and approx. half  flew away and did not
return.  At that time, the Slaty-backed Gull was relocated sitting near the
bins close to my car.
