Description

At Sandy Point State Reservation, on the Southern end of Plum Island, there is a large roped off area that is closed to protect nesting Piping Plovers and Least Terns. Their nests are right out in the open, on the flat sandy beach! There were many Terns flying in circles, obviously protecting their nests, but this on was sitting patiently on her nest, all prim and proper!
