Nest #11 emerged overnight with lots of tracks inside and outside the cage. This is day 59 for this nest which is about average. We'll be doing the inventory on Wednesday morning.

|Lots of tracks|
|Turtle tracks and ghost crabs too|
Update on Nest #12 (which is only 50 days today) - we found two empty eggshells on the surface and a large ghost crab hole. The crab hole is now filled in, but keep checking this one closely; this may be our next nest to hatch.
|Busy ghost crabs...|
