I have taken some license regarding the word walking this week.
I have combined riding a lawn mower and walking.
Last Friday afternoon I was cutting the grass
in front of our house when, about 50 metres away,
I noticed a Spur Winged Plover (Masked Lapwing)
which appeared to be sitting on a nest.
It was nesting and had two eggs which were
sitting on a bare piece of ground.
A most inhospitable place to bring
two offspring into the world.
Remaining two to three metres away
I cut a circle around the nest and hoped
Mrs Plover would return.
Which she did.
