The action is picking up!

Nests #13, #17, #19 and #24 had hatchlings emerge in varying numbers last night. Nest #13 hatched while it was still light enough to actually see the hatchlings and the visitors were thrilled.

We had 1 new nest and no false crawls.

Nest #91 looks to have been our missing back flipper mama.  The nest was laid at the high tide line, so we relocated 57 eggs to a safer location.
