For lots and lots of days I have been watching a nest of eggs owned by a pair of plovers. We drive past them alot, the mum and dad are very protective of their eggs and make alot of noise when anything comes close. I have been waiting patiently for them to hatch....and today they hatched, 3 little chicks. They are tiny and cannot fly yet. I hope the mum and dad guard them safe tonight....a fox might be out there!
