We had 4 new nests today and 0 false crawls!!!  2 Mamas laid very near each other!  Sisters perhaps?

  • Nest #49 was laid right on a high tideline, so 91 eggs were relocated back towards the dunes.
  • Nest #50 was laid below a high tideline, so 118 eggs were relocated back towards the dunes and away from a resident’s pathway.
  • Nest #51 was laid about 25-30 yards from Nest #50 high at the duneline.
  • Nest #52 was also in a safe area!  So happy our numbers are growing again!
