End of the Season Photos

Tracks at P2 today!  But not hatchling tracks; deer tracks.  No sign of any turtle type activity at the site so we will call it a false crawl.


Tracks at P2 nest site




















But deer tracks, not turtle tracks

There were two otters in the marsh this morning chasing schools of small fish around.  First time we've ever seen otters there.  Exciting!

Just a little head above the water

But an otter for sure
And another beautiful sunrise too -



















So our official monitoring season comes to a close with the removal of the last sign.  

P2 comes down
Farewell...

This has been a great season made possible by all you wonderful volunteers.  Hope to see you all back again next season,

Barb and Steve
