Nature Miramichi – Today on Cedriere Rd. Beach

Winterwatch – Nature Miramichi

This morning Deana and I took a drive to the beach at the end of Cedriere Rd. which is in Northumberland County but getting close to Tracadie. The beach itself was bare and ice free and very “walkable” although we didn’t walk far. This stretch of beach is beyond Miramichi Bay and the barrier islands, directly on the Gulf of St. Lawrence, so is often partly or completely ice free. There was no ice to be seen today. We were interested in what sea ducks we might encounter. The list includes about 40 Long-tailed Ducks, 4 Common Eider, about 20 Common Goldeneye and one Barrow’s Goldeneye. There were two Herring Gulls as well. We had a flyby of six Iceland Gulls, perhaps checking on whether we had any food offerings. We didn’t. I was not cold nor windy, really quite pleasant.
