After a grey, windy, and freezing meeting on the beach yesterday to search for signs of Piping Plovers with Don Kennedy, our group of seven came up empty handed.
As fate would have it, this afternoon we received the much anticipated email from Don saying that they have arrived! Perhaps they came in on yesterday’s wind and are now enjoying today’s warm sunshine!
In total, four Plovers were spotted. The next task will be identifying bands to learn more about these individuals and whether they are returning to Sauble Beach or are new to the area.
