THE LOCALS ARE ON GUARD
Our resident pair of endangered pied oystercatchers have decided to use the same stretch of sand to incubate their eggs as they did last January. The eggs sit on the surface of the sand while the parents scrounge for food, keeping a watchful eye out for predators. Last season produced two chicks that survived the elements.
There’s probably not a moment of the day passes without dozens of eyes watching from the headland, ready to trigger the alarm if man or dog transgress.
