Nags Head is playing catch up with nests found in the north end of NEST territory but now the score is 2 to 2!  This year has gotten off to a slow start but everyone is hoping that mother turtles decide to swim our way. Team leaders Pam and Bob M got off to a great start this morning and found the eggs on the first try.
