Just got an update from Jean re the plover numbers:
Refuge Beach: 18 pairs, 9 nests, 22 chicks
Sandy Point: 5 pair, 1 nest, 12 chicks
Newbury Town Beach: 1 pair, 2 chicks
This is shaping up to be a terrific season.
BTW, I don't have any official data on the Least Tern colony at Sandy Point. I only know there are a way wicked lot of them and much courtship behavior was still going on as of yesterday.
