Tough Love on the Beach

10,000 Birds

In June, I go to Nickerson Beach, a place of nesting Common Terns , American Oystercatchers , Piping Plovers , and, later in the summer, Black Skimmers. That kind of behavior could get you starved on Nickerson Beach! There are other kinds of tough love on Nickerson Beach.

Birds at Rockaway Beach

10,000 Birds

I spent the early morning hours the last two days on the beach in the eastern Rockaways, taking advantage of slanted light and cooperative birds. This Piping Plover was the only one left on the beach and I saw it both mornings. Semipalmated Plovers , like this young bird, were all over the beach. And I saw two on Sunday on Rockaway Beach. By the time this post goes live on Monday morning I will be back out on the beach seeing what else there is to see.

Northern Cable Beach birding

10,000 Birds

One of the most secluded beaches around Broome is the northern end of Cable Beach. Cable Beach runs for 23 kilometres from Gantheaume Point to Willie Creek and the length of the beach can be traversed by foot or bicycle, but you do need to take note of the tides. Our tides in Broome are very large and the beach can almost disappear at high tide and huge areas of sand are exposed once the tide retreats. The more secluded the beach the better of course!

A view of the beach. Eventually I tore myself away, and walked until the beach eventually gave way to marsh.
