Waties Island Nest Count

Monday, June 25, 2012

Today Makes 16

16 False crawls by the turtle with the uneven track.  She came up again last night near the jetty and spent a long time on the beach.  There were several spots where she stopped and tried to dig, but again, no nest.

Just a few yards up the beach where the rocks are was a second crawl.  The tracks appeared to be more "normal" and this could be a totally different turtle.  But again, no nest.  Maybe she'll return tonight.

But there is always something to be investigated out on that beautiful island, and today the volunteers found sea anemones in the pools of water along the base of the jetty.  We looked them up in the great book called "Living Beaches of Georgia and the Carolinas" by Blair and Dawn Witherington.  This book has great pictures and is easy and concise.  I love it!

Sea anemones (Nancy's camera captures them)

FC #20 (#16 for the uneven turtle)

FC #21 - but maybe not that uneven turtle!
Wouldn't have been a good spot for a nest anyway

WOW!  Just beautiful this morning
