Early October 2014

The new puffball continues to grow. The older ones have gone to seed.

We have been seeing the herons on the shore. We saw some white birds almost the same size and think they are Great Egrets.

We haven’t seen the turkeys since we had the pasture mowed. They seemed to have split up into male and female groups. Seven males stopped by the bird feeder today. The split up must have been recent and the males are working to establish a pecking order.

We still have a few flowers. It is a tough place for a flower to survive.

The turkeys headed down to the beach and bumped into the heron.

We have been enjoying the wild life here in Newmarket. We saw the deer this morning but failed to get any pictures.
