Nest #12

We had lots of activity this morning.  We had a false crawl between MM 7&8 in which the turtle went up over the dune and back into the water with no sign of attempting to nest. 

But above MM6 and below Nest #4 we had another crawl which looked similar to the false crawl and turned out to be nest #12.

Both Hunter and John took their turn at probing

 And after a few tries Hunter, Leslie and Margie found the eggs
 It turned out to be a nice deep nest.  Thanks to John, Hunter, Susan, Leslie, Margie and Bob we got the nest completed.
