Turtle Patrol Report June 10 through June 18

Turtle_Patrol_Joleen_June_2018Monday, June 11
We have Nest 13! Walkers Beverly Stribling and Joleen Ardaiolo called with a crawl 50 yards short of the cross at the far southern end of the island. Linda and Bill Nelson responded. The mama hit the escarpment and went about 15 yards along the reeds. Starting at both ends of the track, Linda and Bill probed the crawl. Linda found the nest with 108 eggs. 105 unbroken eggs were moved 100 yards south of the downed tree. The Nelson’s granddaughter Savannah assisted in the relocation along with Beverly and Joleen.

Happy Father’s Day, we have nest #14! Rachel Carter reported a crawl near boardwalk 2. While talking with responder Bill Middleton another call came in reporting a second crawl. Soon after that Lisa Hand reported the third crawl. Bill and Eileen Middleton probed, later Sandy MacCoss and Judy Morr arrived to help out. One crawl did produce nest 14, it was decided to relocate the 112 eggs because it was too close to the high tide line. The two other crawls were determined to be false crawls; but one looks promising and has been marked to watch when hatching time arrives.

Turtle_Patrol_Nest15_June_2018Monday, June 18
Veronica L’Allier and Bob Mason were the first callers with a crawl a few hundred yards past the Pelicans Nest. Before Bill and Linda Nelson could respond they called again with a crawl in front of the 4th house past the club. Bill Nelson found Nest 15 at the fourth house crawl and moved the 105 eggs to a safer location with the assistance of walker Joleen Ardaiolo. The crawl by the yellow house took longer even though the mother dug an 8 inch hole, she didn’t deposit any eggs. It was declared a false crawl.

Meanwhile, Rob Jerome, Mike Vinson, Gary Holtz, Cathrine Scully, Lisa Devon and Rob’s brother-in-law Alan Rich called with a crawl into the myrtles between Boardwalks 2 and 3. Bill Greubel responded and found Nest 16 which was left in situ.
