Tuesday, August 9

No new nests or crawls.

I neglected to report that Nest #30 had 6 emerge Sunday night and there were more tracks in the runway Monday morning.

Monday Night/Tuesday Morning

Nest #33 had a nice indention and many hatchling tracks in the runway.

Nest #34 had 1 more hatchling track in the runway.

Nests #27, #30, #31, #32, #35 all had crab holes.

Unfortunately, the remnants of Nests #22 & #24 were dug up by a 4 pawed animal.  

There have been many, many dog prints on and around our nests this summer.  I have shared my concerns with our new Town Manager and he will be addressing the issue.

Things are really hoping now! 

Thank you for your long hours and dedication!
