Whilst on this subject can anyone please throw any light on why the Hooded
Plover has been removed from Endangered status?  On the Mornington Peninsula
(Vic) a dedicated group of volunteers have been working for over 10 years to
turn around the breeding declines in Victoria. Last year we had about an 8%
breeding success - Is this an indication of a species well able to survive?
DNRE now have management strategies in the Coastal national Park to ensure
sustainable management of the wildcoast habitat. To remove the status may
well also remove the impetus for proper habitat management.
Today we observed 3 HP chicks - as eggs seen on Wednesday, this ages the
chicks at 1-2 days.
