Portsea Hooded Plover chicks

There are 2 Hooded Plover chicks at Portsea Back Beach, East of the Surf Life Saving club. Last year one chick survived for nearly 20 days until it was taken by a Kestrel. However, having wardens can help with public education. The longer the chicks last the more people see them and hopefully, better understand sharing a beach rather than dominating it.

The location of the chicks is pretty easy. Drive into the entrance of the park, turn left, keep on that road, (not right) until you end up in the car park where the toilet is located.

Go down the steps until you get on the beach and turn left. The chicks are very close to the steps to the beach.

All being well the warden box will be there for you. Please sign the sheet and provide comments.
