First Hatching of the Season

posted: July 19, 2015, 8:44 AM

Nest number 1 boiled last Friday evening (July 17) with 72 hatchlings getting to the ocean. Hatching season has officially begun! This was on day 58 after the mother laid the nest. The first nest of the season usually takes longer than most because it was laid in May when the sand is still a little colder...perhaps the hot summer we have been experiencing hurried this along this year.
