Snowy Owl on Plymouth’s Long Beach

Hi All,

We had success this morning in finding the snowy owl….way out in the dunes, north of the field station. We just viewed it from afar as the tide was very high and we couldn’t walk along the beach. It was on the top of one of the highest dunes, just shy of the crest and we had a decent, if distant, view through the spotting scope. What fun!

Next Snowy Owl Prowl is this Sunday, Dec. 8 at 9 a.m. (low tide is at 9:22 a.m.) Meet in the Plymouth Long Beach main parking lot at the far end. We will walk from there. If you prefer to drive, that’s fine, too, but it’s BYOV (Bring Your Own Vehicle).

I will have a spotting scope.

Wear lots of LAYERS. Seriously, wear two more layers than you think you will need and if you have rain or wind pants, definitely bring or wear them. I plan to wear insulated coveralls with long johns underneath and two hats and multiple jackets. The wind coming in over the water is chilly, even on a warm day like today! If we go as far as the field station we can warm up there and drink tea and coffee.


P.S. You are welcome to invite interested friends.
