Baby dotterel (2 o 3)

Baby dotterel

Chicks like this baby dotterel are vulnerable to predation from black-backed gulls, hedgehogs, dogs, rats, cats and stoats. The Royal Forest and Bird Protection Society has been active in protecting breeding grounds of New Zealand dotterels during summer, encouraging people to watch their dogs on beaches, and controlling feral mammals.
