I have been visiting this area for years. I have never "bumped into" such a variety of animals as I have the past week or so.
I posted about the "turtle crossing" last week.
On Saturday night we went stargazing at Racepoint Beach and we saw coyotes in the dunes right near the entrance to Herring Cove Beach. In fact we stopped at the exit from HC and watched one sniffing the road in front of our car. The was a second one but it stayed in the brush, only peaking out occasionally.
We also heard a loon at Racepoint.
Then last night, after leaving the drive in my headlights caught a pair of eyes on the side of the road. I didn't get a good look but I THINK it was a fox.
Then there was the leashed pig with the pink t-shirt in Ptown and the usual collection of dogs and all the expected birds such as seagulls and plovers and so on. However I was surprised to see quite a few Canada Geese around this year .,,
So, that is my animal report. ;)
