The state has a total of 66 nests so far. Here at DeBordieu & Hobcaw, we are patiently awaiting our first crawl. Volunteers are faithfully surveying the 6 miles of beach for activity.

Hobcaw: SCDNR has posted ‘No Dogs Allowed’ signs on the south end of the beach near #8 mile marker where there is active shorebird nesting activity. Unleashed dogs wandering up in the dune area can destroy nests and chicks which are cryptic.

Shorebird eggs, nests and chicks easily blend in to the dune habitat.
