If you are wondering where we have been on nest counts on Hunting Island, look at this picture. The beach is still on an upward longer term trend. That is great!!! Conservation efforts work!!!

For all the new volunteers out there, if you wondering when we will get our first nest....?


We have data going back to 1981. The earliest recorded nest was on May 3rd, and latest was on May 26th. The “average” is around May 10th or so. Why the big range and what drives this. Wish I knew, but we are getting close.
