Sunday night and Monday morning gave nothing to report but a beautiful and quiet beach.
Teresa called Matthew to ask about excavating Nest #80 earlier than 80 days since the washovers continued even over the weekend. He agreed.
There was no further activity at Nest #83 overnight.
We are also officially changing Nesting Site #2 to a False Crawl.
- Nest #80 Inventory
- Live Hatchlings-0
- Dead Hatchlings-3
- Pipped Eggs-44
- Unhatched Eggs-62

- So, 4 hatchlings made it out of the nest at some point!!! 1 (or all) of those could be the 1 in 1000!!
