Gimpy has made 15 attempts to nest in 9 days with 1/North Island, 12/Hobcaw, 2/DeBordieu. She is missing her left rear flipper so she has difficulty digging her nest chamber deep enough. Gimpy tries over and over, night after night. Last night, our best guess is that she started at the inlet and made her way north trying to deposit her eggs. She is an incredible and determined old girl and we wish we could help her:(
Middle: Donna had a surprise with 2 Gimpy crawls. This is the first time we ever remember seeing her on DeBordieu. Both were as the tide was receding and U-turns with one where she bumped into the sea wall.

Hobcaw: Kathi A. had a very busy morning with multiple crawls from #7mm all the way around the inlet. Unfortunately, there were no nest(s). Thanks for all your good reporting Kathi:)
