NMB Nest #5!!!

Carla and Don were just barely on the beach when stopped by NMB Sanitation with the news that something was on the beach up ahead. 

 Sure enough, a nice distinct crawl up to the dunes. 

Rob probes and quickly finds a nice soft spot.  Eggs Chamber?

Carla and Don carefully dig.


Soon discovered that 3 of the top eggs were opened and drained.  Ghost Crab?
The  empty shells were removed from the nest and one was used for the DNA Study.

Nest #5,  the first nest of 2012 actually on North Myrtle Beach.

Thank you Carla and Don!!
