On Saturday night we had the shortest walk so far this season! After the presentation concluded, I went out to check to the right/south end of our beach, which is not as popular of a nesting spot, when I came across turtle tracks! It was a very dark night so it was difficult to see her but I could still hear that she was digging. The group was able to witness this sea turtle a bit closer once she was at a safe stage to do so.
The next morning we had a busy patrol! There were 9 nests and 6 false crawls documented. The nest from the night walk was the first nest found in the morning, so now it is nest 206 on our beach!
See below for a few pictures of the night walk nest!
