Please… Help us protect our Nesting Shorebirds
It’s Spring! (well at least the calendar and the shorebirds think so) and that means that our red capped plovers are beginning to nest again. For those of you who haven’t heard of these beaut little birds, they are the small little white and grey birds found mostly on the sand between the surf life saving club and Shoreham. Their nests are super hard to see and their eggs are superbly camouflaged to blend in with the sand. Locally they are vulnerable (at risk of becoming endangered). We try to fence off the nests when we find them but there is a couple of simple things that you can do to help us look after these birds.
- Always keep your dogs on a lead
- During the nesting season keep to the hard packed sand when on the beach
More information can be found in this great article on the Shoreham community website, including details of a volunteer training day if you would like to participate in the monitoring and care of these birds on our beaches.
