The plover and her lover

Episode 2: after watching these two I have now found that she is nesting and has 4 beautiful eggs in her nest. They are so well camouflaged that I only noticed when I downloaded the photos onto my computer. Dad was not a happy camper with me so I did my best to keep my distance. Dad is perpetually on patrol while mom looks after the home. I honestly don’t know the incubation period of Plovers but I shall google it and monitor and document every day. We may have as many as 4 chicks in a week or so.
