Walkers Nancy Shenton, Tara Penny and Jackie Brooks called in just past 6:30 AM. There was a crawl coming in under the steps to Boardwalk 8; Bill Greubel investigated and declared it a false crawl. But he was not finished yet. Nest 17 was found 100 yards north of the second new house from the Pelican's Nest. The eggs were left in situ. Then Nest 18 was found 100 yards South of Boardwalk 6. The 143 eggs were relocated nearby. Congratulations to Jackie; these are her first nests.
Walkers Sandy MacCoss, Alison Bowers, Martha Goldstein and J-Anna Smith had walked all the way to the spit when they found a crawl. There were 3 body pits and lots of tracks. Valerie and Mark Doane and Sandy probed and Sandy finally found the eggs. Nest 19 was relocated 20 yards south of the first dog sign. There were145 eggs.
Another fun day on the beach!
