North nest! Hobcaw nests cleared of accumulated sand
North: Maribeth, Donna and her dad, Bob, stepped off the Beach Club walkway and spotted a crawl to the north in front of North Beach Villas. They walked on checking nests for wash overs. Returning to the crawl, Donna, who is working toward certification, went through the procedure and determined the area to probe. She quickly learned the difference between the firm sand and the nest chamber that “gives way”! The chamber was in a perfect location on the low dune, high and dry…yay Donna!
Hobcaw: Duane, joined by Lori and Michael, had no activity and got to work lifting screens with sand accretion. He said it was a case of “many hands make light work” as they cleared every nest that needed maintenance. This is great and so appreciated by the other HOB volunteers. Lori said “the boys” let her clear one nest with 4″ of sand accumulation solo…go Lori and thanks to all!
