WHEW…we had a wave of nests today with one in the Middle and 4 on Hobcaw plus a false crawl!
Middle: Kathy C. texted that she had a crawl south WW#3. She was a bit rusty from being off last season for medical reasons. Betsy joined Kathy for a refresher course. Kathy located the eggs of DEB24 in the firm renourishment sand after using a metal probe.
Hobcaw: Martha called in at 5:45 with 3 crawls by the time she reached the #2mm! She walked on expecting more activity. After Kathy and Betsy finished DEB24, they headed to Hobcaw.
Here is the way it all worked out:
HOB23 natural south #13mm (Martha)
HOB24 natural north #0mm (Kathy C.)
HOB25 relocated 116 to south #7mm (Martha)
HOB26 natural north #1mm (Kathy C.)
HOBFC22 north #2mm (Martha)
What a morning! Kathy C. fine tuned her skill and is good to go for this busy season. Thanks to Martha for all her efforts and for sharing 2 of her nests!
