Brams Point
(32.171, -80.79)
Osprey Nest Platform
The Osprey nest is on a piling with a man made platform on top for nesting. The only way to view this nest is either from the end of Brams Point looking towards Broad Creek- you would need access to private property (the last house on Brams Point). Or you can view it from the water- boat or kayak to the end of Broad Creek right before it opens up to Calibogue Sound and the nest is located near the last dock on Brams Point- sitting on a piling.

I just reached out to someone on brams point and going to see if I can get set up with finding a way to see the nest from the land. Hoping to score some photos.
