North: Buffie and Mark, subbing for Judy K., were hopeful when they found 2 crawls:) There were fox prints in the tracks of both. One crawl was an obvious false crawl south #12mm. The second, south #10mm had more promise but after extensive probing, no egg chamber was found. We are wondering if the fox was there when the turtle came up and could have scared her?

Middle: Jane also had 2 crawls this morning by the same turtle. Jane gave both crawls a thorough probing and found nothing. Carolyn also gave them a try with no luck…maybe tomorrow:)

Hobcaw: Brandie and Ryan had one crawl that had the classic characteristics of a nest…and it was! Brandie located the egg chamber. The turtle crawled close to the antenna wires but thankfully they were elevated enough. Fine work Brandie!
