ATV rider John J found this early morning nest

This was the second nest found on 7/10/19. What a great turtle day!!

The nest site is surrounded by orange flags.  You can see the long crawl from the ocean to the nest.

Looking for eggs!

After a short time digging Pam M found the nest.  But what?? only a single egg??? What happened?? The team decided to do some more investigation. About 8 inches away we found the main nest. We placed the lone egg in with the rest of the nest, put in our equipment and reburied the nest.

Mike T was our scribe. Thank you Mike!!!
