Watch out for the wildlife

An oyster catcher chick on Glencairn Beach.

As you explore the beaches during the holidays, take care to keep your dogs from disturbing the wildlife. These oyster catchers in Glencairn nearly lost their chick when dogs rushed past them, frightening them. The chick hid in a rock crevice until the dogs were gone. The photos were taken from a distance by Aly Ison.

Be mindful of oyster catchers on the beach.
