The fish have finally arrived! If you haven't been down to the run, go soon! The past 3 days have been great, but now the cool weather has returned, so it's slowed down a bit. I think these are the Alewives moving through, and the Bluebacks will be here soon!
So, look at the schedule and see if you can fill any of the open slots. Look at the weather and pick a nice sunny & warm day!
And here are some pictures of the neighbors!
Thanks to Betsey Godley for these pictures!
Here is a video of the fish jumping!
Thanks to Jessica Kozik for the video!

We have had a few days where there have been no fish sighted at the run, but they are around! One of our counters, Ruth, took this video of one crossing over!! And, if you go up to the flume at Middle Pond, they are pooling there. So, patience pays! We just need a few days of warm, sunny weather and they will be flying through!!

Thank you to everyone who has braved this chilly, rainy, blustery weather!
And just to brighten up your day, I had these guys at my feeders this week. At least you could go inside to warm up!!

The fish have arrived!! Amy Croteau from the Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that they've seen fish in the run. So they went and removed the boards up at the Middle Pond flume and the fish now have a nice flow of water going through. Now is your chance to sign up to count! Look at the schedule and decide when you're available to count. Send us an email and we'll put you on the schedule.
Our email is: email@example.com.
Thanks so much for everyone who has signed up to help! And if you have any friends who would like to get involved, it's never too late!!

We had a great turn-out for the herring training meeting last Saturday. Thank you to everyone who attended. Scott Horsley gave a great presentation about the Mill Pond restoration plans and Amy Croteau was very informative about the various active and potential herring runs in town. Just remember, it's not too late to volunteer. Just shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

So, it's almost time for another herring year! In just about 2 1/2 months, the herring will make their annual trek up the river and into the pond. It's time to start thinking about getting prepared for another year. This year, we will have Scott Horsley from Horsley and Witten in attendance to give an update about the plans for Mill Pond. Believe it or not, we have finally gotten approval to move forward with cleaning up the pond! And, Amy Croteau from the Town of Barnstable will once again give us an update on the status of all of the herring runs in the town. Very exciting stuff!
