FRIENDS OF THE HOODED PLOVER
A vunerable hooded plover chick on the back beach at Mountford beach.

Unresponsible dog owners that walk their dogs at any time (flouting the current regulations) and have allowed their dogs off leash on the back beaches cause many problems for the hooded plovers, their nesting grounds and their chicks.
