Our coordinators Caleb and Georgia were on the beach early this morning (we call them our Piping Plover Rapid Response Team, PPRRT) to fix the perimeter fencing. Don Kennedy alerted Andrea from Birds Canada this morning that the fencing had been taken down by high wind and water.
Upon arrival, the fencing that had been nearest the water was approximately 20 feet into the lake, and many of the signs had gone missing. Caleb and Georgia, as well as Lindsey from Birds Canada worked tirelessly for two and a half hours getting all the fencing and signage back up.
Both Nancy and Bo were observed to still be present, and an incubation switch was seen by Lindsey after the fencing went up. This was a huge success overall, especially when you consider how bad it could have been if the birds had nested somewhere with less protection.
See you tomorrow!
