Remember the ghost crab at Nest 6 near Marker 4? No new eggs shells on the surface, only a few tiny pieces, but there is a very large hole right by the reed marking the egg chamber and the crab was actually spotted entering it this morning. A ghost crab trap was placed near the hole in hopes of capturing it for relocation. Tuesday walkers, check the trap please. Those pesky ghost crabs!
Many thanks to everyone who assisted today . . . it takes a village.
