I really hope this is not the new normal.
2 new nests today.
#52 – relocated 91 eggs to marker 55.1, 33″ crawl
#53 – relocated 104 eggs to marker 55.9, 32″ crawl
Nest #12 hatched around 9:00 with 68 hatchlings and lots of spectators. Lots more tracks in the runway this morning and 1 dead hatchling.
Nest #4 had a boil around 11 and spectators called Chris who returned to round up a few that were still on the beach. Lots of tracks in the runway this morning.
Nest #5 hatched during the night. That persistent crab was back again today.
Nest #13 hatched sometime after midnight.
Nest #9 had more tracks this morning.
Nest #7 had 3 more tracks and a hatchling in the runway that we helped to the water.
Nest #11 had 52 turtles around 11:00 and a couple of tracks this morning.
AND the NS (nesting spot) we marked on May 21st had a couple of turtle tracks. We think we traced to the nest and put green around. Team #1 is going to keep an eye on the area.
No they are not in order….for those of you who noticed.
