October 6, 2023 – #91: A Great Hatch!

We inventoried Nest #91 on this busy King Mackerel Tournament opening day!  This nest hatched during the night-early morning hours October 2nd-3rd with lots of hatchling tracks leading to the high tide line. The bugs had chased everyone off the beach that evening, so the turtles emerged as nature intended (without an audience). It was a great hatch!

Nest #91 Inventory:
Hatched Egg Shells – 99
Unhatched Eggs – 7
Nothing else
