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.
Our season is underway. We had 2 false crawls this morning. First was a 37” at the east point and then a 33” crawl over on the river in Southport. Maybe tomorrow will be the day for a nest!
