Wednesday - #24 (Sea Turtle) and #15 (Terrapin)

Shortly after hitting the beach, Zone 3 found a loggerhead crawl. After careful probing, the experts determined that this was a non-nesting crawl.

Minutes later, the Zone 1 team found a loggerhead nest, and relocated 112 eggs. In the far reaches of Zone 1 we also found a long crawl of a terrapin that ended in nest #15 in the dune.

Last Nest of this Season!

The last nest of the season has hatched. This morning Buddy and I checked it out. There were not that many tracks. Perhaps more came out earlier, but the wind blew away the evidence. More may come

A bald eagle was spotted in Zone 4

Just happened to look up and saw the eagle on the top branch of a dead tree. Since there were very few nests to check, it was a surprise to catch a look. Hope it is here to stay.
