Waties Island Nest Count

Another nest today!

Late Sunday afternoon, our fifth nest of the season was found up in front of Marker 8.  There was a group of visitors picnicking there only a few feet from the crawl.  Several of them helped us find the eggs.

The crawl before the incoming tide erased the tracks

 These visitors (sorry we didn't get their names) were being very careful when they were digging.

Steve is pointing where to dig

And there it is!
The tide was coming in quickly and there wasn't much beach to drive on, so we quickly caged the nest, put up the signs and headed back home for a cool shower.  Didn't even have a chance to get a photo of the cage and sign - maybe tomorrow.
