We’ve had a quiet couple of nights and days out there. Morning Patrol was able to get out between down pours, but didn’t see any evidence of emergences. Sand washed in the runways and high tides caused some overwashes on the nests near the lighthouse.
There are 9 nests left on the beach, counting Nesting Site #2. We are currently waiting on the 80th days to inventory Nests #58 & #60.
