North: Frankie, Donna and Peggy had 2 crawls this morning. There was a U turn false crawl:
DEBFC11 north #16mm at Prince George
They also had a crawl north #9mm where the turtle went up on the dune in vegetation. From the photos they sent, it appeared to be a false crawl with no obvious body pit. Donna probed and found a soft area, dug down and bingo…eggs! She said the experience of a similar nest, DEB17, in front of the N. Beach Villas, helped her locate this one…way to go Donna!
DEB34 natural north #9mm
Middle: Bob C. found a crawl south WW#5 where the turtle plowed along the scarped dune and it appeared to be a nest. Betsy and Bob determined of most possibility and he probed the middle of the crawl. After much probing and removal of sand, they asked another volunteer to check it. Susan, having no Hobcaw activity, was summoned to be another set of eyes/hands. Her efforts produced no egg chamber either:( These turtles keep us guessing!
