Birds on the Move

August always seems to come suddenly! There you are, enjoying the summer when suddenly you notice that the days are getting a little shorter and birds are on the move again. Returning to Wildwood we are still seeing Herons and Kingbirds, Swallows and Kingfishers. But nearby at Harrington, the shorebirds have been arriving along with Great Egrets.

Bald Eagles can still be seen fishing regularly along the Thames and over Wildwood Lake but we are also beginning to see more Hawks in the area again, like this lovely Red-tailed Hawk.
