This morning ATV rider Brenda B. found her first nest of the year. Congratulations Brenda! Responders Peggy C and Margaret J were out early to verfiy the nest, gather data and rope off the nest.
Nesting responder Peggy C found the eggs on the first try. Since today is Pegs birthday maybe it was a birthday gift from the mother sea turtles out there.
The job was completed and the nest was roped off until the hatchlings are ready to plunge in the ocean!
