We're Going to Miss Her When She's Gone

But she's not gone quite yet - another false crawl this morning just above the entrance. Not even too much of a nesting attempt, only a little digging. But it would have been a great location if she had succeeded.

Closer look at these tracks we've seen too often this week

In the past, this turtle has given up after five to seven nesting attempts only to return about two weeks later to try again. So it may be that we won't see her again for a while, but tomorrow will tell.

A whole pen shell
And even the animal inside (not alive though)
