Time out on Plover watch

My to-do list is crazy insane! Just one look at the calender has me feeling very overwhelmed. So it's not suprising I came down with a pesky cold last week putting me out of action for a few days, forcing me to take it a little easier. In that time I noticed a Plover had made a nest in the middle of the lawn. It seemed like such a exposed random place to nest, that I made myself "Unofficial Plover Watcher' (as you do) in hope that I could help field away prowling ferals...


  1. My partner will have you - and everyone - know that it's a masked lapwing. Sigh. I have to live with them. Gee sus.
    Anyhoot, I am surprised you got that close to a nest. I've always wanted to see one up close and yes, they do pick really exposed nesting spots. They're vicious though. I must have been close to one on a run last week because the bloody things flew full tilt at my head - front on. Not like a magpie where they swoop from behind. This bird sent me diving for cover.

  2. What happened? Did the eggs hatch? You've left it hanging like a season finale episode... So much loveliness on your blog that I don't know where to start.
