Waties Island Nest Count

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

On Wednesday, August 12, with SCDNR permission,
an inventory of Nest 5 was done. This nest was discovered
last Wednesday at False Crawl 4 pole. Numerous eggshells
and whole eggs had been found on the surface during the
ensuing week.
Today, we found 9 hatched and 23 unhatched eggs. 20 of
these unhatched eggs were moved to a new location at Marker
6. The other 3 eggs were flat and empty. We will watch the relocated
nest and inventory it at a later date for final results on this nest.
