Team 3 had excitement last night while sitting at nest #2.  A turtle came in on the beach but didn’t go real far up before turning around and heading back out.  We called it a false crawl for today even though the tracks were erased by the tide.

Morning patrol had 2 more false crawls and 1 nest.  26” false crawl just east of Mercer and a 31” false crawl on the east end.  Nest #48 has 134 eggs and a 35” crawl.

Not so exciting news, nest # 9 was dug into by a fox and we lost about 6 eggs.
