WHEW!  The wind blew us away last night, but will hopefully be better today.  Many nests and runways were under additional sand and most will need attention today.

Nest #6 hatched right on Day 56 between 9:00 and 9:40 with about 50 hatchlings seen going to the water.  Congrats to George for sticking with them!!  There were 2 more hatchling tracks this morning.

We have 1 new nest and no false crawls.  Nest #81 was laid at the East End near a recent high tide line and 113 eggs were relocated to a safer location.
