Monday has 5 nests

We had five nests today with four of them being relocated. Nest 123, 124, and 127 were in zone 4. Nest 125 was in zone 3 and nest 126 was in zone 1. Nest 127 in zone 4 was the only one left in situ, The turtle crawled high to the dune and literally leveled herself out a little platform in the side of it to lay her nest! Nest 124 was predated by raccoons with 60 eggs lost and 41 relocated to a safe area. The beach total is now 127 nests

Bryan Sink got this picture of one of the whole yolks from the predated nest.
