Default IBSP Closing A-23 South on 6/30

A nesting pair of piping plovers requires IBSP to close vehicular traffic at A-23 heading south on June 30. This is the first time that PP have nested there since 1989 and then it was in the Northern Natural Area so it didn't involve a beach closure. That portion will reopen when the PP chicks fledge, usually by Aug 15. They will give out 1/2 page hand outs at the gate. Not my first rodeo with PP. By now I'm considered the recreational authority on them. I'll answer any ? and post updates on this thread as I get them. Vehicles can enter A-23 but must go left up the beach. This weekend should be normal but 4th of July will not. Gillikens will remain fishing only and will not change to accommodate any all purpose overflow. Cooperation during this temporary incident insures our continued favor.

There's an electric enclosure on it now. If something happens to them they will try to rebreed and it will be longer.

I'm glad we casters really don't fish mid summer. Its mostly the beach goers/swimmers who use the annual buggy SUPPOSED TO BE FISHING permit mid summer.
Although at night, oh well.


Mostly = Not all, for those who will take offence.

Well this does reinforce the need for a healthy active fox population at IBSP...

We Sandy Hook fishermen feel your pain. You have one pair and we have dozens. You can't even walk the beach line, absolutely restricted areas in the best Fluke and Bass fishing around. Hopefully they'll become extinct soon so we won't have to deal with this BS I vote for more Foxes

It's wild how much facebook angst there's been against these birds.

Heck, even Brigantine, BRIGANTINE the BASTION of SURF SUPREMACY, has to deal with birds. That's kind of why I was joking about it earlier.

All right ... Who's been running down the chicks?

"The pair of piping plovers nesting on the beach at Island Beach State Park (IBSP) successfully incubated their nest with four chicks hatching on July 2 and 3. The nest, in the park's Southern Natural Area, is the the first ocean side nest in more than 25 years and the first in the park in more than a decade. It is hoped this is an indication of a rebounding population after sharp declines between 2003 and 2014 of the federally threatened and state endangered piping plovers in New Jersey.
As is frequently the case with plovers, one chick was quickly lost to an unknown cause (most likely predation). As of Thursday, July 14, another chick had not been observed for three days, but since chicks can be notoriously elusive biologists are hopeful it is still alive. The remaining two were doing well, making some big movements this week. They had been staying in the general area of the nest but around the same time that the third chick disappeared, the brood headed south and moved approximately 1,000 meters, then over the past two days have moved back northward, covering almost the entire distance.

Piping plovers chicks leave the nest within hours of hatching, running between their primary feeding area at water's edge to the cover found at the front of the dunes. This behavior makes them extremely vulnerable to predation or unsuspecting motorists driving on the beach, especially since the young are tiny and camouflaged - colored to blend in with the sand - and have a habit of freezing and crouching in the face of approaching danger."
