What a difference a few days can make! They are a little late this year but the herring are finally here...
Mass Fish and Wildlife page that gives updated information on this annual event and rules that accompany it now that the fishery numbers have declined dramatically.
If you have a chance to go to a herring run, please do. It is a sight you won't soon forget and kids love it. Watch the gulls, herons and ospreys gather all along the creeks and rivers to take advantage of the huge numbers of fish, too. If you ever wondered why herring gulls are so named, you won't after you see them feasting on the fish...they swallow them whole!
These pictures were taken this morning at the Brewster Herring Run on Stony Brook Rd.
