The kentish plover is a shorebird that breeds and nests on the coast from mid-March to mid-July. Their creamy white, speckled eggs are laid on the sand and blend in with the environment. Their nests are often found at the top of the beach, between the seashore and the dune. Because of their colors, the eggs are very difficult to distinguish and can easily be crushed, especially when men gather on the beach. Too much disturbance will also cause the adults to abandon the clutch. The collection of waste and gatherings on the beach should therefore be avoided in the nesting areas and during the breeding season.
