Waties Island Nest Count

Monday, June 4, 2012

And Another One...

False crawl #6 this morning up above Marker 9.  Looked like the same uneven tracks that we have seen in four previous false crawls all of which were above Marker 8.  Talk about nest site fidelity. But this morning, Sandy, Donna and Kim actually saw the turtle returning to the ocean!  How cool is that?

 Now, if she would just lay a nest!  Maybe tomorrow.

No equipment to measure the width, but it's big!
She crawled right up to the dune

Still lots of the track visible but the tide was rising quickly
Returned in afternoon to get a GPS reading
