They did that for a few weeks either last year or the year before, as soon as that dumb bird showed up. Poof, there went the access to the whole thing.

Still closed, plovers everywhere, counted at least 10 nests towards the point. Walk was fine in the morning but i damn near steamed myself   Alive on the walk back in waders at noon. 

I do not wear waders in the summer day or night for that particular reason.

It's been closed for nearly a month. Don't know if that's normal or not.

I thought it was generally 2ish weeks, could be wrong. I also still cant fathom the logic, you can't drive down towards the point anyway so why does the entire beach need to be closed for vehicle access. Liberal logic at its finest. Kudos to you for doing that entire walk though.

If they could close it year round they probably would.

It seems some of these  feckers don't like the new nesting area we bulldozed  for them and have built a couple nests by the golf course and  the sand pile in the back.  These nests are too close to the access road.  The birds need to fledge before they open it back up, google says 28- 35 days from egg hatch.  Get your binoculars out and tell us when the last egg hatches.

They wouldn't risk losing sales of permits ( both fishing and surf), easy money for the state.

Given that they just--that is, in the last few years--opened it up in the winter so that surfers could drive to Demo, that's probably not an accurate observation.

They've been nesting back there for years--plovers actually prefer the backside to the ocean beach.

 

I always think of fledging being completed in early August.
