Hobcaw: Susan was joined by Pat St. this morning. They had a crawl north #5mm. The turtle came in on a rising tide, crawled up on a low dune, made a body pit and turned around to cross over her incoming tracks. Pat wasted no time zeroing in on the likely chamber area and her instincts proved correct…HOB27!

DEB 25 HOB 27 SCUTE 138 SC 3400

6-13 Susan and Pat found this crawl with the body pit in an ideal location on top of a low dune.
6-13 Pat, who is working on her certification, examines the crawl to decide incoming vs. outgoing tracks. The outgoing track crossed over the incoming.
6-13 Pat located the egg chamber of HOB27 and protected the nest with Susan’s guidance.
