Nest #2 was laid in Corolla on Memorial Day (May 27th). This nest had to be relocated as it was laid below the high tide line. It was a loggerhead nest and our mom came in a bit more parallel to the beach so it was a great find by our ATV rider Bill Duval.

Nest site with incoming tracks parallel to beach and outgoing tracks crossing over them.

We counted 91 eggs and had a lot of wonderful folks join the Nest 2 response team – lots of hands made for easy work as they safely transferred the newly laid eggs to a nice new nest!
