Team 3 had excitement last night while sitting at nest #2. A turtle came in on the beach but didn’t go real far up before turning around and heading back out. We called it a false crawl for today even though the tracks were erased by the tide.
Morning patrol had 2 more false crawls and 1 nest. 26” false crawl just east of Mercer and a 31” false crawl on the east end. Nest #48 has 134 eggs and a 35” crawl.
Not so exciting news, nest # 9 was dug into by a fox and we lost about 6 eggs.
