RETURNS x6 FALSE CRAWL.
|A before sunrise on WI... Eastward sky, exquisite colors and a COOL a.m. welcome!|
|Toward Hog Inlet, Southwest a FULL moon setting...ever changing wonder!|
|Discovery...tracks @lower end near Hog Inlet.....crawled in @higher tide, exit@low tide.|
|Our 'reluctant' mother, crawled, with her signature 'uneven tracks' above high tide line below Dunes,again attempted to dig. She dug 3 pits, ( 2-top left photo, 1 right middle of photo)?|
|Steve H., probed area of top left nest? her 6th visi to deposit her eggs.......NEGATIVE for a nest!|
Is our 'persistent' mother planning to lay those eggs tonight???
Time will tell?
Below photo is the crazy crawl #2 continued with this Mother!
|At same time, we see crazy 2nd crawl??.....left along Dunes, toward Hog Inlet,|
Tracks faint....earlier entry and exit.....?
|Further investigation reveals tracks are identical to 1st tracks!!|
She crawled onto WI again, unsuccessful attempts @ nest!
|Close-up photo, revealing uneven tracks, apparent problem left flipper...same 6 times!|
|Exiting to sea@ low tide, soggy wet sand, measure of tracks, same 39-40 inches.|
She exited 1hour or so? before we discovered her 6th False Crawl
|Thanks, Wednesday Team...Back Row:Steve H., Deb/Bobby S.,|
