2014: Nest #19

Nest #19 was found today by the TDC beach crew. It was storming so hard and lots of lighting so the walker did not walk so I called the TDC to be on the lookout and sure enough Nest #19 a loggerhead at 118 Montgomery St. in Seagrove…..Hurrah no picture as to rainy

Nest #19

dead embryos 44
total eggs 110
survival % 9%
in evaluating this nest, it appears that this nest had water in the nest, from the bottom upwards, and the only eggs to fully hatch were on the top and then with some developments next down. The eggs on the bottom were very brown colored and no development at all.
