Hooded Plover update for 16 December and a Birds Australia Hooded Plover newsletter

Currently there are newly hatched Hooded Plover chicks at the Melbourne Water outfall, which is a region of National Park that has low visitation by people but dozens of horses. Despite the horses, in recent years there has been good success at raising chicks on this section of beach without wardens.

In the mean time, below is a newsletter from Birds Australia about Hooded Plover conservation. Enjoy, (may take awhile to download)
