Chuck-will’s-widows are calling at night, having just arrived from the south this week. At the dock, fisherman caught the first of the seasons for two fish species… the Whiting and the Oyster Toadfish. Both species were caught using shrimp, and many other popular species have been biting on shrimp as well. Redfish, Spotted Sea Trout, and Flounder have also been caught using shrimp.
Butterflies such as Clouded Sulpher and a variety of Whites are now being seen; they are especially drawn to the Yellow Thistle which is beginning to open along the roadsides. Dragonflies can also be seen on the wing, and crickets and other insect life can be heard in the evenings.
