2014: Nest #22

Nest #22 a loggerhead was found by Barb Basinger at the eastern most tops’l condo unit. She was a very small turtle only 24 inch wide track and only came out of water 20 feet. At first Barb thought it was a false crawl. Take a look at the picture. She did not throw much sand and you can even see her body pitting area. Eggs were further in than we thought and you can see she went back over her incoming track. But when you look notice that you can’t see the end of her incoming track so that gives you a clue it is a nest, no matter how much thrown sand there is.
