My Adventure at Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge


I came across a flock of Snow Geese (see short video above) I couldn’t stop gazing at their beauty.

This is an updated version of my scenic drive down Route 9 Delaware Bayshore Byway, to visit the beautiful Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge here in Delaware.

There’s a fox that lives here but I haven’t seen him yet. Just do a search on Instagram for Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge and you’ll see plenty and while you’re at it follow me @tinaoutdoors

I so want to get into wildlife photography and this is the camera I’m looking at – Sony Alpha 6000 Mirroless Digital Camera. Hopefully by the time I come back in the fall, which October and November are the best times to visit, I’ll have a new camera.

Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge is one of 2 National wildlife Refuges in Delaware. Stay tuned as I make my way down the coast line to visit the second one, Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge.

Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you’ve been here or not. Love to hear about your adventure to this special place.
