Joy, Kathleen and Wanda worked hard to find the eggs today! We had 2 new nests and one false crawl.
The False Crawl was located east of Fort Caswell’s Maritime Way Access. Mama climbed up the escarpment, dug a hole, left no eggs and didn’t cover the hole. Crawl width: 89 cm/35″
Nest 9 Crawl width: 95cm/37″. 143 Eggs relocated above the high tide line
Nest 10 Crawl width: 67 cm/26″ (SHE WAS SMALL!). 126 Eggs relocated above the high tide line.
Last year Nest 8 was laid on May 29th and Nest 9 was laid on May 31st, so we are a little ahead of those stats even with our late start!
