All About Seagulls

Gulls were once described by a medieval Welsh poet as “immaculate loveliness,” but closer to home they are often derided as “dumpster ducks.” No matter where you stand on the subject, there is no arguing that against a leaden gray sky, few sights are more pleasing than a “swift-proud” gull “breasting the combers.” Three species of gull can be encountered in Derry year-round with others making an appearance on the seacoast at various times during the year. Local wildlife enthusiast T.J.

Sharks in the Gulf of Maine

Get an early jump on “Shark Week” and learn about the shark species that can found in the Gulf of Maine to include the New Hampshire seacoast and neigboring Massachusetts. Over a dozen species of sharks are regularly encountered in local waters. These range from the lowly dogfish, the bane of deep-sea fishing trips, to the Basking Shark, the second largest species of shark in the world.
