Herring Cove Beach


Herring Cove Beach, originally uploaded by Campobello Island.

A beautiful day for a nice long walk on Herring Cove Beach, also the only safe place to walk during the Deer Hunting Season.

As I walked along the beach there was a huge flock of mostly immature Herring Gulls that would lift and fly a little further up the beach and then repeat the process when I got too close again.

Eventually they got tired of the game and moved off shore with another large flock that seemed to be mostly adult birds.

That lasted only a short while and someone gave the order and the entire flock lifted and left the area, not a gull left behind.

I will never understand how such a large group can be so organized.
