    Fascinating info on dune fences including:

    "erecting fences to protect sand dune vegetation, the establishment of walkways will protect developed sand dunes from degrading again overtime"

    Never thought that dunes would be fenced in, but it makes sense.

    Was the plover a Western Snowy Plover or a Piping Plover?

    Nice, Bill. Brings me back to picnics on Newcastle beach with my grandmother. We used to play in the sand dunes for hours.

    Thanks for the memory! :)

    And the repair job can be metaphorical as well as literal.
