Marine and Coastal Discovery - Hooded Plover Twitch
Have a look through our powerful scope to see if you can spot these elusive but amazing shore-nesting birds. These aren't those awesome plovers that swoop and screech at you when you are too close to their nest, these are the hoodies that need our help to survive when they nest on the beach! At this time of year the Hoodies are looking after their eggs and chicks, but only a few eggs ever hatch and grow from chicks to adulthood. Paint a banner to raise awareness and come and help them to survive!
