2014: Nest #40

Nest #39 another one for our Miramar area, this loggerhead found by Erica, and marked with the help of Shar. The nest is in the open area just west of Pompano Joe’s a crossed from Avalon. We usually have a nest in this area and every time, there are so many lights in that area that the poor turtle can’t find her way back to the water, She goes up and down and all around after she has nested. She is tired and the way to the water should be to the lightest area but those darn artificial lights mess her up. Here is her track back. Shar and nest.

2014: False Crawl #32

Oh what a heart beaker. 4 Mile Village needs a nest and this would have been so great. This green crawled up 95 feet into the sea oats, just to keep on trucking around and back to the water. Oh no. I called Topsail to see if they had a nest but they did not, so we all need to think great thoughts that she will come on back to 4 Mile the perfect place.
