Monday, July 8

We had a 32” false crawl this morning on the point.

We relocated Nest #57 this morning.  I sent pictures and texted with Matthew Godfrey yesterday and he agreed that it would be better to relocate than let it roll into the ocean.  This morning, it had been overwashed and was only 2 inches from exposure in the escarpment.  Moving a nest at 10 days incubation is not healthy for the eggs but better than losing them totally.  I counted 137 eggs and sure that 8 of those were unfertilized.  They were moved close to the dune just west of the 200 walkway.
