Big news from Sauble Beach: the first Piping Plover nest of the season was discovered this morning! It was spotted after a particularly cold and stormy weekend, and its appearance came 3 days earlier than last year’s first nest. Exclosures have been successfully installed as we await more eggs!

The breeding season is in high gear and we can’t wait to see the chicks on the beach in about a month!
