Nest #63 had one more very late arrival.
A fisherman on the Ft. Caswell fishing pier found a hatchling in the river current. He very smartly took it to the ocean side beach and released it! That is the 4th hatchling spotted from that pier in 3 nights. We have no idea where they are coming from as we have checked our river beach. I may have to take another walk today, just to make sure!
It was quiet overnight except for the crabs.
Nests #67, #71, #76 and #77 all had crab holes!
Hoping the breeze picks up a little more and the bugs go far away tonight!
