These birds are all threatened because they depend for survival on the narrow band of beach that we increasingly use for development and recreation.

They are vulnerable to dogs, cats, vehicles and predators, especially while both parents incubate and guard their eggs during summer.

Birds remain in the same area for their lifetimes, with migratory species returning to breed.
