Nothing new today.  Crabs abound.

I have recorded 15 nests as lost and we have 34 still incubating.

I said currently lost because we don’t know the location close enough.  Our GPS method was not the best but we will have an accurate GPS locator before next season.  Some nests locations were pointed out by adoptees or the folks staying in the houses behind them.  They had been on the beach for several days looking at them.  I believe some marked lost did not wash out to sea and should be incubating (if any are incubating) but we can’t narrow down the location.

We could have another nest or 2 this week but then our laying season should be over.
