I bet Darlene, lead responder for Nest 26, reluctantly thanked her husband Dave (ATV rider) for finding this nest on her response day! Another tough green nest. Yikes! We found about about this nest from three different sources, a beach goer who saw the turtle on the beach last night, the driver of a morning trash truck and Dave! Thanks to all!!
A lot of digging went on before the eggs were found.
