On the evening of Friday 14th February the plovers had moved to a different
roost at cattle were grazing in their original roost.  If you follow
Richard's directions and then walk straight down to the bay, turn left along
the beach and go through two fences.  The plovers were roosting around the
next major point, in the short grass just back from the edge.  It appeared
to be easier to sneak up on them on the other side of a ridge that runs
roughly parallel to the coast and then inch forward over the ridge towards
them.  If you move slowly with frequent stops they don't appear to mind and
will let you come reasonably close (especially on hands and knees :-)).
