August 16, 2023 – Windy Wednesday and another False Crawl!

We had another False Crawl on the East End this morning.  She crawled up an escarpment, up a dune slope and slid down to crawl back to the water.  Goodness, that was a lot of work!

Some of the nests gained sand during the high winds yesterday.  There were no nest emergence.
