The Brant have returned!

THE BRANT ARE HERE!: Area residents driving or walking along the beachfront are starting to see some very welcome visitors. The Brant geese have begun to fly in from their winter feeding grounds and will be in the area for the next couple of months as they fatten up on herring roe, before continuing on to their breeding grounds in the Arctic. - Photo submitted by George Bedigan
