North: With the big crowds expected this week and next, Buffie and Mark put a wider border around DEB19 just north of the Beach Club walkway.
Middle: Walter had a crawl just north WW#7 where the turtle made a tight turn at the scarp but left no body pit, thrown sand, etc. and called it a false crawl.
Hobcaw: Steven had lots of activity starting with another crawl in Ocean Green where the turtle scaled the high pushed up dune and made a body pit right in the walkway path. While Steven and friend, Bevin, walked on to check other Hobcaw activity, Bill went and staked/taped off the body pit to keep it intact until it could be located and moved.
On their return walk from the inlet, Steven probed a crawl south #2mm that looked like a potential nest. He could not located a chamber and decided it was a false crawl. Steven had another crawl north #1mm and easily located that egg chamber. The nest was on a good slant and could be left natural. Great job today!
With Steven being so busy, Bill and Betsy went to the crawl in Ocean Green in the pathway. They located the chamber and moved the nest south of #0mm to the “nursery” where there are about 5 nests are incubating that have been relocated from Ocean Green.
