These are some photos from three recent visits to the National Wildlife Refuge. Two were early morning visits and one was a late morning visit with one of the early morning visits being a rainy/overcast. Alligator counts were varied; unusually, the late morning visit yielded the most with 33, the rainy early morning visit yielded just 9, and the second early morning visit yielded 16. The water level in the diversion canal is still very high so most of the Alligator sightings continue to be in the first half of the Laurel Hill drive. Terns and Skimmers were very active on all three visits and Ospreys were out hunting in this morning’s early morning visit. The Great Egret and Black Bellied Whistling Duck numbers continue to be up as well.

I'm an Amateur Radio Operator, Radio Monitoring enthusiast, History enthusiast, and very amateur nature/wildlife photography. Most of my amateur radio activity is voice because I mostly operate from a mobile station (listen out for me operating from Jekyll Island, IOTA NA-058). On the radio monitoring side of things, I enjoy listening to military aviation, Fire/EMS, and USCG/Federal comms. My History interests are varied and I enjoy reading about a wide variety of History and visiting historic sites. I take an interest in nature, wildlife, and the environment and particularly enjoy going to the National Wildlife Refuges in my area to take photos. Due to my job, I split time between Savannah and Brunswick, GA View all posts by KF4LMT
