(Charadrius alexandrinus)

Hi Tn Friends!
Few days ago I found this nest while walking on the beach... very curious behavior. Once the female feel our presence she run away from the nest calling our attention over her.When she believe theres no problem to come running in fast movements until reaches the nest. Curiously its a very permissive bird allow our presence from few meters...
