On the side of the path to the beach Rosa rugosa were blooming, they are nice flower, however, they are considered invasive. Rosa rugosa is a species of rose native to eastern Asia, in northeastern China, Japan, Korea and southeastern Siberia, where it grows on the coast, often on sand dunes.
One of the piping plovers were running along feeding, while the other one was hidden on the nest.
A pair of least terns have set up housekeeping again on the beach and we wish them well and hope they will produce a brood and that predators will not bother them.
