We need YOUR help to protect our important seabird heritage
When walking on the tideline be careful of ringed plover nests. These delightful little waders nests are vulnerable to disturbance from walkers and dogs at this time of year, so look out for signs of the the birds and their distress calls and move away from the nests. It is only for a short time!
When the chicks hatch, the parents will brood them along the beach away from the nest, they are still vulnerable to marching feet, but the egg stage is the the time when we need to be extra carfeul.
