On July 19, NEST ATV driver Jim Kranda found his second nest for 2016 in Nags Head. The nest was very close to Jim’s first find (Nest 24). The odd thing is that the track crawl was very similar on nest 24 and nest 34.
The now all seasoned response team quickly determined the location of where they thought the nest eggs would be and sure enough Les found the DNA egg in short order.
The nest was marked, data taken and the TEAM was off for some much needed down time to await the NEXT sea turtle nest call.
