Cape and South Islands both had nests this morning! Cape Romain is the largest nesting area for the northern population of loggerheads, with over 1600 nets laid in 2022. South Island, just south of Winyah Bay is one of 3 Yawkey Islands (also North and Cat). There were over 500 nests laid there last year. With the current ocean temperature of only 68.4 degrees, it is unusual nesting is off to such an early start!
