Our June Urban Nature Walk was at Savin Hill Beach in Dorchester. This sun-bleached European green crab shell on dry seagrass is a good symbol of how hot and dry it's been.

Mediterranean rock pigeon lurking in the seagrass is here to remind us we're in the city.

The beach was littered with dozens of razor clam shells, but it came as a real surprise to encounter a live one!
