This nest was laid up against a sheered off dune on Friday,
June 17. Today, after two months of wind blown sand, a beautiful
dune has formed, which we had to dig deeply in to in search of hatched eggs.
We found 121 hatched eggs, 8 unhatched eggs, one dead hatchling,
and six live hatchlings to send on their journey!! 93% success!!!
