What a Difference a Day Makes

Yesterday, nothing at Nest 14, not even a ghost crab hole. But overnight, out they came!

The volunteers continued on up the beach for a while and then returned to check the nest site again. This time they saw a lone straggler leaving the nest and they were able to see it make its way down the beach and into the ocean.

And off it goes!
This is our final nest of the season on Waties; an inventory will be held on Thursday morning.

Thanks to Donna for sharing her photos.
