Nest #55 inventory results: 109 shells, 1 unhatched and 1 pipped.

We have nests #57 & #58 still incubating but don’t expect anything for several more days.

We have called to have the ATV picked up. Thanks again to Duke Energy for providing our transportation for the season. We will be checking the 2 remaining nests on foot.

We did get DNA this week for nests up to #47. I will try to have information about those results at our end of season party. Yes, we are planning to have a gathering in a couple of weeks. More to come.

I will probably only send emails on the days there’s something to report.

Nest #55 inventory Saturday @5:00

Nest #53 inventory results: 47 hatched, 71 unhatched and 1 live hatchling.

We went on a stranded call late yesterday evening in Southport. It was absolutely the biggest loggerhead I’ve ever seen. Injuries indicated probably a boat strike and we are hoping this mornings high tide is really high.
