Ringed Plovers

Ringed Plover, Charadrius hiaticula
I found a pair of Ringed Plovers nesting on a beach a couple of miles from where I live and I hope to follow their progress in the coming months.  Both the single egg and the nesting bird are just about impossible to see unless you know where to look. The black neck marking breaks up the head outline perfectly. Its partner was feeding along the surf line.
