No new nest this morning but it was a beautiful morning. A great day to have more hatchlings (come on nest 2 and 3).

Nest 50 had a big crab hole for the second time this week. Nest 5 is showing a little depression.

Inventory at nest 1 last night was pleasantly surprising. We could only account for 30 hatchlings having emerged but we 101 shells, 10 unhatched, 5 live hatchlings and 1 dead. There was a big crowd but everyone was great. Thank you first years for coming out with us and hanging through the marathon. It’s going to be a great turtle season.
