4 false crawls on this rainy morning. There will be a video on the Facebook page for you to see. It was pretty amazing to see them because they were all together. Morning patrol is of the opinion that it was probably 2 turtles each making 2 attempts.
WOOHOO!!! 3 nests and 2 false crawls today.
- Nest #13 is west of the baptist steps and had a 40″ crawl.
- Nest #14 is west of 629 walkway, relocated 112 eggs, 36″ crawl.
- Nest #15 is west of 629 walkway and had a 33″ crawl.
False crawls were west of the lighthouse (33″ crawl) and west of 601 walkway (36″ crawl).
We thought we had 1 false crawl and 1 nest this morning. Turns out we had 2 nests. Both had 34 inch crawls and both in front of the villas. Nest #8 and nest #9 are in the books!
They reported seeing a turtle crawling back into the water and I’m sharing the picture they sent me. You gotta love a sense of humor at 0600.
Don’t know if you been on the beach the last couple of days but the tides have been really high. Nest #2 overwashed yesterday and today. We had 3 false crawls this morning but no nest. All were 36” crawls. Two were between Bob Spake and Tom Hess walkways, the third was near the 629 walkway. Here is a picture of one of the false crawls from this morning.
