Seasoned ATV rider Tim M dodged thunder and lightening to find his third nest of the season!!  Yes 3!  Tim is also ATV Captain for the Nags Head route.  All we can say is thank you Mr. Tim!!

Nesting responders found the nest in short order.  I think Les P, our oral support specialist, was concerned about the impending storm because he not only found the nest on the first try but also quickly put in orientation stakes.

Les puts in upper orientation stake used to locate nests if stakes around nest are lost in a storm.

The team was quick to evaluate and secure the nest but not quite quick enough to avoid getting very wet!

Efficient but soggy team 20!!
