Hooded Plovers….back & busy
Our local Hoodies have been busy,they laid 3 eggs which hatched 4 weeks later and now there are 3 chicks roaming from one end of the beach to the other, hopefully they will fledge in the next couple of weeks. Hooded Plovers are a critically endangered species with less than 50 left on the NSW coast.
They nest in a scrape in the sand between August & March.During the breeding season please help them survive by looking out for signs or fences& avoid these areas,stay close to the waters edge and keep dogs away and pick up discarded fishing line.
and don't forget to add your sighting if you are lucky enough to see them.
