Well the Sunday curse of no nests found on Sunday was completely shattered today.  Sunday ATV rider Peggy C found another nest  making two in a row for 2021!! Congratulations Peg.  Primo nesting response leaders, Cathy and Kyle D, along with the rest of the Ace Team of Angela S and Sharon E found the eggs on the first try. Wow! as it was a complicated nest. Mother turtle laid the nest in a good spot so Team 21 did not need to relocate.  All in all a perfect nest.
