A 30” false crawl at marker 62.1. She came in hit some sand fencing, turned around and went back out.
Nest #10 is located at Mercer Street. She had a 33 inch crawl and we just missed her on morning patrol. A jogger has just seen her going back into the water about 15 minutes before we got there.
We had a 29” false crawl at marker 61.5. Although she went all the way into the dunes, she didn’t lay.
We had nest #9 this morning from a 36” crawl in front of the Villas. Some of the turtles seem to just get to the high tide line before they lay, so we moved 121 eggs back to the base of the dunes. As this turtle made her turn to go back into the water she hit the leg of a canopy. Fortunately it didn’t stop her.
Nest #8 is located at marker 61.5 . She had 42 inch crawl and left her nest nice and secure at the edge of the dune.
A 30” crawl gave us nest #7 at marker 79.5. 101 eggs were relocated in front of the dune line.
We had nest #6 today from a 27” crawl at Marker 54 in the Baptists area. We moved 116 eggs from the high tide line to marker #55.1.
We had nest #5 today from a 37” crawl at Marker 65.2, close to Nest #2. We moved 123 eggs back from the high tide line to Marker 65.5.
Lucky for us, we got Nest #4 from a 32” crawl. She laid just above the high tide so we moved 118 eggs to Marker 72.9
We also had a false crawl of 32” which was very long but she didn’t make a nest.
We had Nest #3 from a 39” crawl at Marker 56. The top eggs were just under the sand so she probably filled up the hole she dug.
We now have a nest at either end of the beach and one in the middle. Hope we fill in the spaces in between.
