September 13, 2023 – Wednesday Tidbits

We really are starting to slow down!  Last night was beautiful with the lightning show (the storm was in Florence and Lumberton), Starlink Satellite Train (22 lights) and the cool breeze.  We have 11 nests still incubating on Caswell Beach.  The hatchlings will probably take a few more days to incubate than the ones pre-Idalia.  The high tideline is much lower now, so hopefully anything swells comes our way from Hurricane Lee won’t be a problem!

Nest #79 Inventory:
Hatched Egg Shells – 41
Unhatched Eggs – 24
Pipped – 3
Spacer Eggs – 2 tiny ones

Nest #79
