Saturday, June 26

We had no crawls on Saturday, but today made up for it!  There were 3 new nests and 3 false crawls!  

  • Nest #46 was laid on the East end AGAIN and just under a sloughing dune.  134 eggs were relocated to a safer location!
  • Nest #47 was laid precariously close to a high tideline. 120 Eggs were relocated back to a safer distance.
  • Nest #48 was also laid on the high tideline.  104 Eggs were relocated to a safe location.

A sweet family got to watch our patrol in action and learn about the process!

Thanks, Morning Patrol!!!  You are AWESOME!
