Little Ringed Plover

Whilst surveying recently, one of the birds that I have come across is breeding Little Ringed Plover.

They do nest in some of the most unlikely positions and habitats that you could imagine, during the surveys nests/territories were marked as they are Schedule 1 to avoid disturbance, exclusion areas were then placed around them.

Below is a section of photos.

This adult was keeping an eye on some large Gulls nearby

Brooding chicks

A bit out of focus, 4 chicks, highly mobile as soon as they have hatched.
