Discovering nests

I love the magic of discovering sea turtle nests when I'm out walking. Those which looked as though they would be threatened by a storm surge were relocated farther back to the dunes before previous storms. Unlike our 711-1 nest, this one looks like it came through Gustav just fine.

If we can avoid more storms, we'll be seeing hatchlings in October!

Now that you know where that one is, you may have to nest sit with it!! 7051 hatched really well despite repeated dousing with Dolly, Eduoard, Fay and Gustav. Let's hope the rest do as well! navarre just had a new nest Friday!
