Two nests in one day!  one here in Nags Head and one in Corolla.  Is this nest two or three??? After consultation with KC yes we are Nest  2!

Happy group with a job well done with many new nesters at the ready!

Nest leader John guided us through the search for eggs and we found the nest in first set of holes!!  Measurements were taken and DNA sample safely stowed away. Next steps…temperature data logger and ground water monitoring pipe (that PVC pipe on south side of nest)  were installed!

What a beautiful crawl in the background!  shorter incoming crawl on north side and longer out going crawl after tide had gone out on south side.
