This morning we had crawls coming in….and going out!

North: Mark found a U turn false crawl south #9mm. The turtle came in last night probably just after sunset. Continuing south, he found a crawl/potential nest south #6mm in Ocean Park that came in later on a falling tide (same turtle?). There were so many prints all over the area but no forced entry:) We think it must have been the fox family. Buffie arrived from checking north to the inlet and probed the body pit. She located the egg chamber of DEB42 and was able to leave it natural…yay!

Middle: Walter was happy to report the major hatch of DEB02 at high tide! He said the tracks were too concentrated to count. There was a big depression and animal prints all around. We will inventory this nest Thursday at 6:00 p.m. It is located between WW#3 and WW#4.

Hobcaw: We will inventory HOB02 located at WW#12 Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. Please meet on the beach in front of the nest.

7-26-21 The body pit area shows interest by predators with lots of prints all over. Maybe it is the family of foxes we have all been seeing on the beach?
