This error is natural because “incidents” appear where we often expect the subject, just before the verb. “Incidents” is actually part of a prepositional sentence that modifies an earlier word, “nature”, and the word should correspond to that verb: Remember: In here there are constructions, search for the subject according to the verb and choose a singular (est) or a plural verb to match the subject.
