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!
