Friday, September 2

Thursday Night:

Nest #67 had hatchlings emerge at a very fast pace!

3 hatchlings were seen in the current at the Ft. Caswell Pier.  The beach was checked and no nest was found.  The tide was coming in, so they could have washed in from Bald Head or from Nests #67.  Tough break!

Friday Morning:

Nest #59 had lots of crab activity and 1 head hatchling.

Nest #64 had a few more tracks in the runway.

Nest #69 had a large crab hole.

Nest #77 still just has a small depression.
