If you haven’t been to the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary at low tide, put it on your list. You can walk all the way out to the beach and you never know what you  will see and you’re never disappointed!

I saw this Ruddy Turnstone, and many more, the other day. There were so many on the outer beach scurrying about, it was hard to count.

I love his very distinctive coloring. What do you think?

We headed out to the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary early yesterday morning to see what birds were out on the beach, as it was soon to be low tide. We were not disappointed!

Looking for food in the tidal pools was a Black-Bellied Plover and he was beautiful! We spoke to one of the volunteers and she said that this bird was just coming into his plumage.

Beautiful bird, don’t you think?

This Great Blue Heron was patiently standing on the log at Goose Pond at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, waiting for his next meal. (Click on Blog link if you can’t get the entire photograph.)

I loved the reflections of  the Great Blue Heron, the driftwood, and the reeds on the water. The water looks almost mystical…

There is no shortage of turtles on the Silver Spring Trail at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. The trail goes around Silver Spring which has plenty of logs out in the water. Each one is teeming with turtles trying to get on board!

Such a fun hike for the whole family!
