Our second nest of the season was laid in Corolla. The turtle mom spent a great deal of time nesting as her incoming tracks were nearly completely erased on the left side of the picture by the incoming tide which peaked at 9:38 pm but her outgoing tracks were clearly visible down to the ocean when it was a lower tide early the next morning.
The Loggerhead Turtle mom had some unusual tracks possibly due to a flipper issue?
Loggerhead mom picked a great spot her nest as it is tucked up close to the dunes. NEST ATV driver Bill and NEST responder Shannon show off the newly secured site.
