**On Friday, Barb Curlew went to the place where the shorebirds have been roosting on Waterside Beach. It was infuriating to find that a truck had driven through there earlier, and there were hardly any birds left there.
There were a few Sanderlings running along the surf edges, some Herring Gulls just standing around, and a Ruddy Turnstone. In the afternoon, they were pleasantly surprised to find 2 Eastern Bluebirds back at the Shortcut Road, Waterside location, where they saw this species this summer.
**Yolande LeBlanc found 5 Black Swallowtail Butterfly Caterpillars in her carrot patch in Memramcook, obviously the second brood of the season.
Rheal Vienneau will be collecting them today for grow out and release, so we can expect some nice photos to arrive over the next weeks.
There will be no updates to Nature News for, I suspect, 4 days unless things change as the editor will be out of internet range.
Please forward your nature photos, and they will all be shared as soon as the editor gets back into an internet service area.
