We had nest #2 this morning at Marker 55.5 (Baptists’ Steps area) with a 34” crawl. Our new morning patroller, Barbara, was happy to see her first crawl and help with protecting the nest.
Sunday, May 26, 2013 – Although Oak Island had a nest on May 12th, our first nest wasn’t laid until this morning. After 3 false crawls we had our first nest at marker 60.5 (Dr. Brook’s house) with a 40” crawl. She had laid well into the dunes and the nest was caged and left in situ. The false crawls started at marker 50 and we presume they were all from the same turtle.
