Description

Four birds (two pairs), resting on the beach at near high tide (incoming). The birds were resting in a fenced off area. Local dotterel defenders have fenced off the area early in the hope that local dog walkers will keep their dogs away, and the birds will feel safe there. Fingers crossed. Saw 6 dogs off lead pass the fenced area while the photos were taken.
