Sunday, July 16

No new nests today.

The storm ran us off the beach last night. The lightening was just too much. We waited in the car for a little while and ran back for a look.

Gary watched as 1 hatchling made it to the water. This morning you can see (if you look closely) that there are more tracks. So after all this waiting, they did it without us. Inventory Tuesday at 7:00.

Nest # 50, Saturday July 15

Nest #50 today. We relocated 96 eggs from the east end to east of the 200 walkway. Her crawl was 39″.

Nest #1 has a crevice this morning. That is a crevice identified by Susan, not Gary. (For those who have been with us the past couple of nights).

Nest #49, Thursday July 13

Nest #49 was relocated from the east point to west of the lifeguard stand. She had a 32″ crawl and we relocated 131 eggs. One egg had a “string” attached…it was a first for us so we sent it off to the DNA lab.

Still nothing at #1, 64 days now. Green was delivered to Nest #3.

Nest #48, Wednesday July 12

2 false crawls east of the public parking area, 39 and 40 inches. Some folks saw her come in, make it all the way to the dune and go back out. The spot just wasn’t the right one I guess. Please if you see a turtle on the beach please watch from a distance without lights. Disturbing a nesting turtle can cause her to abort laying eggs and cause her physical harm.

Nest #48 is located west of Bob Spake and had a 37″ crawl.

Nest #1 is at 63 days and we are diligently waiting. Some of the first years are hanging tight with us and we appreciate it.

Nest #46, Monday July 10

Nest #46- 138 eggs were moved a bit further away from the water. It is east of 601 walkway and her crawl was 42″.

Green was dropped off at nest #2.

Today is day 61 for Nest #1 so it’s definitely closer than it’s ever been. With the rain and storms today, safety first always. We will check it periodically and let you know if there’s any change.
