Hello dear Blogger friends. Uh-oh. Once again I have been absent for two weeks. But here I am again.
We had a terribly cold snap and rain on Tuesday this week. And gradually the weather has warmed up. Today has been an idyllic day which, of course, Skabby and I took advantage of. We went for our normal walk to the dam and enjoyed the warmth and a few birds in the area.
A very agitated plover on the edge of the damFor the past three weeks this single Blacksmith Plover has been very agitated by our presence; especially when Skabby arrives to jump into the dam. A plover will try to divert your attention from where its mate is sitting on eggs. They make a shallow nest in the open ground. I have walked all over around the dam, trying to see the nest or the mother nesting. However, the plover becomes so agitated, that I have stopped looking.
