A Place For Plovers.


There wasn't much left of Plover Scar above the surface when I arrived yesterday at high tide, so no evidence of what the scar is, and what it really means to the birds when the tide is out.

Clik the pik to read the importance of this message 

But since I was last here on Monday, I was pleased to find the erection of this excellent sculpture and notice at the parking area by Lighthouse Cottage.

Great work by everyone involved in getting this much needed important message and excellent art work put in place....Well done, and a personal Thank You.

That sculpture is absolutely wonderful, Pete, and I'm very impressed by the information board too. I'm delighted to see that there's mention of keeping dogs on a lead and away from the birds - it gives you some sort of armament against inconsiderate dog-walkers.

I'd like to think I contributed at least in some small part to this result Richard, after-all dogs - and certainly off lead dogs - and birds are not a good combination, and it looks like maybe I reported incidents of disturbance to the right people.
