Capelin will soon be rolling on our local beaches. Dr. Craig Purchase (MUN Biology) will give beach side Q&A information sessions on capelin reproduction and other aspects of their biology during the spawning season. We don’t know the actual dates and times at present but we will let you know when Craig will be at Middle Cove and/or Bellevue beaches.
On May 29th, 2015, Alvan Buckley and Catherine Barrett participated in the Great Canadian Birdathon. Their goal was identify 75 species in 24 hours along the Avalon Peninsula but by days end they saw (or heard) a whopping 92 species. Check out Alvan’s blog posts (part 1 and part 2) for more details on their birdathon.
