North: Lourdes had her 3rd nest of the season this morning with the crawl of a tidy turtle south #10mm. She located the chamber quickly and felt the nest was high enough to leave natural and on a slight incline. Way to go again, Lourdes!
Hobcaw: HOB04 was laid 5/28 in Ocean Green, which is prone to flooding, but did not make the 9:00 a.m. deadline for relocation. Two weeks later is when SCDNR says a nest can safely be relocated. Volunteer in training, Pat St., with Betsy there for support, relocated 123 eggs south to better habitat. Bob B. returned from his Hobcaw walk and helped carry the bucket and count the eggs going back into the nest. Pat did a very careful job on her 2nd relocation!
