North: Lourdes had a crawl volunteers dream of just north of the Beach Club:) There was a textbook body pit on the slant of the dune with all the clues that it was a nest. Lourdes probed and located the egg chamber of DEB17 which she said was deeper than her other 3 nests this season. Turtles lay fewer eggs with each clutch. Nice job, Lourdes:)
Fox video: Last night we received a video from a neighbor out walking the North end of the beach with her children. They observed a mother fox around 8:45 with her kits close to one of our turtle nests. Let’s hope the mom doesn’t know how to hunt turtle eggs. She seems to be a regular on the beach at dusk.

Middle: Pat St., walking certified for the first time, had a U turn false crawl just south WW#2. This turtle came in around high tide (1:35 a.m.). DEB17 nested when the tide was lower so it may have been the same turtle.
Hobcaw: Bob B., subbing for Susan, also had a U turn false crawl north #12mm.
