We only saw one pair of Plovers on the beach today.
I could hear some alarm calls from the nearby vegetation.
Their footprints remain as silent witnesses of the confrontation between these little birds and other beach goers.

This is the information board at the entrance of "Horse Trails" which is the main entrance to Ploverbeach.

There is no mention of the Plovers and Oystercatchers that lives on this beach.

Where to go?


I am tired of running away from these humans and their dogs!

One could nearly say that this little Plover looks sad.
Within the next few years it will be impossible for them to breed, on this beach, without our help to educate the public regarding their breeding terrain.
