Kentish plovers used to breed in Kent England, but not only do they no longer breed in Kent, they don't even breed in England. They are small waders found in salty or brackish terrains. They run back and forth among washed up material, in search of snails, small worms and insects. They nest on bare open grounds, preferably covered with shells. Tranquility is an absolute must, which makes them very susceptible to disturbances from beach recreation and dogs. They have been declining in number since 1990.
