Hobcaw: Robin subbed for Wendy and found a crawl just north #3mm. The turtle went into the grasses but didn’t appear to dig and crossed over her tracks exiting (false crawl). Further down just north #12mm, Robin found another crawl that had nest potential but was in a flat area below the spring tide line. She relocated it and found only 21 eggs! We have seen this before. It could be due to the turtle’s age, health or environmental issues.
HOB08 Relocated to south #11mm
