Saw the horseshoe crab spawning episode on BBC’s Life. Something like this happens not so far from here and i had no idea. Every year during spring-full/New moon-high tides thousands of horseshoe crabs come to the shore in the Delaware bay to spawn and thousands of Red knots, on their way to their breeding grounds in the Canadian arctic, time their flights perfectly to be there to feed on the crab eggs, refueling themselves for another couple of thousand miles of flight.There are still a couple of days in June when it would happen. If not this year, you all should try to make it next year. That is if you are interested off course:)
Couldn’t find the Life clip on youtube. A much longer video about the horseshoe crabs and the red knots on PBS(plummeting numbers is not a good sign).
A couple of Rutgers professors have a book on 25 nature spectacles in New Jersey. some of them might be worth a visit.
