Nest 82 Mama with Red Light

I used red light with one to show how she makes tracks.  You can decide to share or not.  By the time she was ready to hit the water, my phone said ‘storage full’!!!!!  I hardly had anything on my phone!  So, I got what I got.  And my memory is full of the whole thing!

I have to send one video at a time.

 

 

Nest #83 Miramar

Nest #83 This is such a special story, on June 19,2015 Lisa found a loggerhead crawl that went way up into the dunes. I was moving a nest down in 4 mile village that Tom had found and joined the egg hunt as soon as we were done. It was hot and all of us we very hot and tired. So with the area being way up at the top of the dunes we marked the area with a stake, GPS’ed the area and gave up. Erica has been having her volunteers that walk that area check the area after 50 days. Today Kellie walked up to the area and found that it had hatched. What a wonderful treat. We are so happy and proud. SWTWG is on the beach daily doing a great job of finding tracks and marking nests. We always watch out for anything sea turtle. So thanks to you all you are the best group. They even found a hatchling that had gone up into the grass. We always hunt for hatchling who might has gone the wrong way. Here is it’s picture.
