    Over at the Point, three pairs of plovers have hatched chicks. One pair has three chicks and another has one; the third pair’s chick had not been spotted for about a week. Two additional pairs of plovers are still incubating eggs on the Point, with the first nest’s estimated hatch date around July 5. The second nest was found on June 23.
