The season's first Piping Plover was at Long Beach, Stratford this morning.
The bird was easily spotted as it fed on a dark mudflat on the marsh side.
It gave up its' cryptic plumage advantage on that dark mud flat,
but perhaps it was trying to avoid some ravenous looking Great Black-backed
Gulls on the LIS side of the barrier beach. The bird was not banded.
