Monitoring of Kentish plover (Charadrius alexandrinus) populations during actions for the recovery and protection of the Empordà dune systems.
The tasks consist of walking along the beaches recording the number of nests with eggs, chicks, or adult birds in various study areas.Monitoring is carried out during and after the dune recovery work to evaluate possible alterations in the reproduction of the Kentish plover due to the activities.
Monitoring makes it possible to check how effective the installed systems are at preventing people from accessing nesting areas and to verify that the plover population remains stable.
