Middle: Beth found a crawl just north of Walkway #3 that appeared to be a nest by a very “tidy turtle”. She worked on probing the crawl but found no egg chamber. Judy K. joined her to probe but also had no luck. Betsy and Bill also worked on finding the chamber but after a collective 2 hours, deemed it a false crawl (aborted nesting attempt). We are in hopes the turtle will try again tonight.
As June arrives we are in hopes of more stable, warmer weather and more nesting. The low numbers along the SC coast (particularly the north coast) could also indicate a low nesting season…we will see.
