We found 2 nests yesterday and another nest this morning! We are so excited that the turtles are back and keeping us busy. This morning on patrol we had to relocate the nest as it was situated below the spring high tide line. The nest had 124 eggs. The tracks and the eggs were quite a bit smaller, so perhaps she is a new nesting sea turtle. We will find out when the genetics information returns later in the season.
See below for some photos from the past two mornings.
