Snow and Canadian Geese will start there northern migration in March. After a few warm days in April, Baby Diamondback Terrapins Hatchlings will start to emerge from the beach and make their way to the Marsh. It’s also the time when Purple Martins, Hummingbirds and some Shorebirds start returning. In May most all of migrating Shorebirds have returned. This time period also starts the Horseshoe Crab spawning season, for which the Shorebirds come to feed on their eggs. The largest congregation of Shorebirds usually occurs between the middle of May to the end of May – including the Red Knots. Horseshoe Crabs will start Spawning as the water temperatures increase in the being of May and last through June. The highest spawning numbers will be on evening high tides with a full moon. As summer approaches many of the Migratory Shorebirds have left for northern summer breeding grounds, while some will stay for the summer. By the end of May Diamondback Terrapin females will start looking for nesting areas on the beach which lasts into July. Horseshoe Crabs will continue to spawn through June and may linger into July. Throughout the summer months Dolphin can be seen just offshore. Cownose Rays can also be seen close to shore mating and feeding. Later in the summer, Diamondback Hatchlings will start emerging from the sand on their journey to the marsh. Fall brings the return of some Shorebirds on their migration south. Most Hatchling will stop emerging and will winter over in the sand until the spring. Usually, later in September and into early October, Monarch Butterflies can be seen migrating across the Bay from the Jersey side. Over the past couple of years the number of migrating Monarchs has dropped significantly. Fall also brings migratory Waterfowl back to the area. With winter settling in, more migratory waterfowl will show up along with Canadian and Snow Geese. Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge is a good place to see the waterfowl and the surrounding farm fields for the Snow and Canadian Geese. Tundra Swans can also be seen from time to time through the winter. For the last two years Snowy Owls have been visiting S.B. and the surrounding area. In the bay an occasional Seal can be seen and sometimes come ashore to rest and sun themselves. Please be mindful of our “visitors” while they are here. Flip Horseshoe Crabs, but never by their tails, as you walk the beach. Diamondback Hatchlings should be moved to the marsh, not the Bay. Help the adult Diamondbacks by moving them safely from the road in the direction they are going. Keep all dogs leashed when Shorebirds are present. Above all, enjoy the unique experience S.B.’s and its habitat offer.
