Nature Miramichi – Hay Island Visit Saturday

Hi All,

Five of us had a very pleasant time on Hay Island yesterday. It was a little cool at first but we were prepared and for the most part it was sunny, warm and with a very light breeze. It was a very lovely end of summer walk.

We were quite fortunate too in the number and variety (31 species) of birds we saw.

Semipalmated Plover, Semipalmated Sandpiper
Lesser and Greater Yellow legs, Dunlin

Pectoral Sandpiper Short-billed Dowitcher
Sanderling Ruddy Turnstone
