It was a pleasantly cool morning with 2 more nests!  Our Mamas are favoring the east end this year.  

Nest #38 had to be moved from just beyond the King Tide wet sand.  152 eggs were relocated to a safer location!

Nest #39 was laid safely very close to another nest that had been laid 16 days ago.  Wonder if it’s the same Mama?  DNA will tell!

You will see from the pictures that we are training up the next generation!  This is Hannah’s 3rd year on Walking Patrol and Ty’s 2nd year as a CBTW member.
