This nest took a long time to incubate. Heavy rains in June and July may have slowed down incubation. Finally on Day 67, around 10PM, a depression forms. The beach is quiet, a few NMB STP Volunteers mixed in with a few curious and anxious spectators. The beach is dark, changing tide from High to Low but water line is still a good ways up the beach. Hatchlings emerge around 11PM and all race to the ocean.
Second Inventory is conducted on Thursday, August 15th at 7PM. Corinna and Connie dig into the egg cavity. This time, no live hatchlings are found so Inventory is completed.
