Nest #10 was laid and we relocated 76 eggs, 42” crawl.
Nest #11 was laid and we relocated 114 eggs. Her crawl was 38”
Nest #9 had a 40” crawl and we moved 116 eggs closer to the dune
Nothing on our beach this morning but got a call about our Southport turtle. We brought 143 eggs and placed them on the island. Her crawl was 38” and that’s Nest #8!
Nest #7 was laid yesterday. The crawl was 39”.
Nothing for today.
A 40” crawl led to securely placed nest #6 today.
An eventful start to Memorial Day. 3 nests today!
Nest #3 was laid and 141 eggs were relocated, 34” crawl.
Nest #4 had a 35” crawl and was moved back to the dunes, 111 eggs.
Nest #5, 36” crawl and 145 eggs moved away from the tide line.
Remember those who sacrificed ultimately ensuring our freedom of choice. Have a safe and happy Memorial Day.
We had a 34” false crawl near the 601 walkway this morning.
Nest #2 today, 34” crawl. We located the eggs just before the downpour set in.
WE HAVE NEST #1!!!!
36” crawl and laid safely next to the dunes.
Still no more activity. Oak Island, Holden and Ocean Isle all have nests so it will be any day now.
