Lauren’s Piping Plover Report – 5/1/2020


“Another week has gone by! It was hard to fit a plover survey this week with all the rain! I don’t know how they aren’t miserable out there.“
Here’s the total for the week:
14 pairs
8 singles
total: 36 adults
“This is one less adult than last week. I am hoping to do a survey during high tide next week (if the weather cooperates) when the plovers are easier to see. One pair was acting territorial which is a good sign. I saw a few flocks of sanderlings as well. The beach got pummeled this week. There was a huge amount of seaweed washed up. One section was 0.2 miles of seaweed!“
