Hooded Plover family


The Hooded Plovers of Tura have another clutch of 3 eggs,their 3rd since September .2 of the first 3 successfully fledged ,1 shown in picture above. The 2nd clutch hatched around New Year  but within a day of hatching were taken by this hungry Nankeen Kestrel ,[ I had seen it hovering every time I was on the beach].

The parents have moved North and should be hatching their new eggs any time soon…..
