Hobcaw: HOB was not going to be outdone by the North’s 2 nests today! Around noon, a friend called Bill and told him there was a nest around on the creek side of Hobcaw. He sent photos and it sure looked like a nest. Betsy and Bill were able to reach Bob B. to go by boat and work on the crawl with a number of boats anchored nearby. Bob has learned much from his probing experience to go deeper and looked like a pro as he quickly located a soft area. Sure enough, he dug and found eggs…so proud of you Bob! He protected the natural nest (HOB06), got all the data and we hopped back in the boat…fast and easy!
