|Oliver Mills Park at the junction of Route 44 and Nemansket St., Middleborough, MA|
Oliver Mill Park is a great place to visit. There are picnic tables so you can enjoy a lunch or a snack. There are remnants of the old mill and for you photographers, when the herring start running you can photograph gulls and great blue herons feeding plus photograph the herring jumping to get over the dam to make their way up to their breeding area in Assawompsett. If you are into macro photography, Ebony Jewelwing Damselflies and other interesting subjects are present when the weather gets warmer.
To photograph the herring you can use a polarizing filter on your lens to cut down the glare from the water or use a underwater camera and place it down into the water and fire away.
|At the end of the second bridge on the right if you look down there is a pool where the herring congregate prior to them trying to jump up over the dam and is a good place to photograph the having|
