The drought is finally over!!! Nest 22 was laid today in kitty hawk and found by Billy😎on this beautiful morning.

So momma Turtle left us with a quandary, where in this big pile of sand, did you actually lay your eggs

On the first guess Lynn found the eggs. Good job because it could have taken a lot longer to find them. We then had to relocate the nest, since mom laid the eggs at the high tide line.

First try. Yeah

106 total eggs.

Getting all the eggs out. Team effort

while we were getting the eggs out of the nest, pam and bob were already digging the hole for the new nest.

Way to go pam and bob!

thanks to everyone who showed up this morning. Good job team #22
