Plum Island Mink - Revere Beach Shearwaters - June 13, 2011

A drive down Plum Island on Monday found the Mink seen below running along the edge of parking lot #6. She stopped several times appearing to be in search of a prey item, on closer inspection once home I noticed this is a nursing female, perhaps it was her youngsters she was running off to.


Revere Beach has been hosting a number of Manx Shearwater along it's shore for a few years now. I stopped this past Sunday and came across 16, a high count for me. 11 can be seen in the image below.


They spend a fair amount of time close to shore affording excellent views at times. Here's four in flight.
