Nest 3 - Sunday, May 20th

The day started early with a crawl between boardwalks 1 & 2. Valerie and Mark Doane along with Rachael, Marshal and Neva Carter found the crawl. Mark and Valerie are both Walkers and Probers today. They found the eggs with a little investigating; marked our 3rd nest and then continued to walk zone 3. Sandy MacCoss arrived and it was decided that the nest needed to be relocated. All pitched in and moved the nest to a safer location.

Meanwhile, Diana Cohen called to report a crawl in the protected bird nesting area on North Beach. She and the other walkers marked the area with orange tape and the Doanes and Sandy were notified to probe after finishing nest 3.After extensive probing it was decided that this was a false crawl. It has been marked and the area will be watched when it is hatching time.
