Kiah Walker’s Piping Plover Report – 6/5/2020

“We currently have 26 pairs on the refuge beach, 22 of which have active nests. Some are already re-nesting after the first round of predation. I’ve exclosed “some of the nests to improve hatch success, but some are in tricky spots that are unnecessary or impossible to exclose. (The lobster trap nest is going strong!) An off-refuge update: Sandy Point has more habitat and more plovers than ever before (16 pairs). The banded plover that nested on the refuge for the past two years is now nesting at Sandy Point as well.”
