This is feeling like the peak nesting time which we thought had passed! There is so much turtle activity and soon the turtles will be coming and going.
North: Martha found a crawl with a distinctive barnacle mark and concise body pit south #9mm in the flat of the beach. Walking on, she noticed a fox/coyote had been all over DEB37R from yesterday. The sudden interest is concerning…ugh. Returning from the inlet, Martha found and relocated the DEB39 directly back to the base of the dunes. Good solo relo!
Hobcaw: Wendy had multiple crawls this morning starting with a crawl high atop the pushed up Ocean Green dune. Just south there was another crawl at #0mm right in the walkway. South #7mm there was a crawl in the scarp of the dune with nest potential. North #14mm, Wendy found a meandering dune crawl but didn’t hold out a lot of hope for it. Here is how activity played out on Wendy’s big Hobcaw morning: HOBFC15 False crawl north #14mm HOB30 Natural south #7mm
HOBFC16 False crawl #0mm HOB31 Natural north #0mm
