August 29 – Some Disturbing News!
Peggy this is what I found when I got to nest I-1 last night. I left everything like I found it so you could see it this morning. I'm sorry i woke you last night, but I wanted to make sure you knew about it.
We had an insult to I-1 last night between 9 and 10 p.m.
I met with OB Police about the insult to I-1 and a report was filed. I also spoke with Federal authorities.
To all Team Leaders
FYI we had someone dig into I-1, broke at least 1 egg. Local and federal law enforcement have been notified. Everyone stay vigilant.
Last night a cheering crowd saw 71 hatchlings to the water as they emerged from I-4. I am hearing more scratching this morning! The hatchlings were very large with excellent instincts. Thanks to all the team who assisted and a BIG thanks to Rick W for all the “baby-sitting”.
In Appreciation to all,
With the ominous storm clouds fast approaching, I went to check the nests. I-5 has popping sounds. ????
