Incubating in final exclosure Milford Pt 13 May 10


Photo of incubating adult within the 4th exclosure on the Francis Street Spit, Milford Point, 13 May 2010. Adult, facing left in lower left corner, is well camouflaged. Unfortunately this nest was washed out by a storm that coincided with a high tide. That tide also washed out two nests on Cedar Beach (the beach btw the CACC and Laurel Beach).
