Looks like we had a Kemp’s Ridley try to nest this afternoon on Caswell Beach at the Tom Hess Access (Ocean Green’s).  Tom and Barbara saw her as she was covering up her digging area.  Teresa got there to see her go back to the water. Then 6 of us tried and tried and dug and dug for 3 hours to find the eggs.  We came up empty!  Don’t know if she was practicing or got spooked, or if the eggs are hidden too well.  We would have relocated them if we could have found them as they were below one of the high tide lines.  We marked the area as a Nesting Site and will keep an eye on it over time.
