Washo Reserve

I went to the Nature Conservancy's Washo Reserve north of Charleston today looking for osprey. After all their web site says the reserve is "one of the largest concentrations of this bird on the east coast." I saw a few flying around but I didn't see any that appeared to be nesting. Perhaps it's slightly early.

I also got rather lost. Usually I can follow a map, but I looked at the trail map before, during and after my hike and was never precisely sure where I was. Trail markings are sporadic and I considered myself lucky to find my car as quickly as I did. Of course I forgot my handheld GPS.

Without any osprey coming close, about the only photo op was this gator lurking in one of the ponds. Click for a larger version.
