Gordon’s Surprise for Alabama Point
From Peggy Lively (AP Team Leader) June 7th…
All the Mama Turtles were trying to get to the Jimmy buffet concert last night! We had three crawls today. I found a very small false crawl just East of the long boardwalk. Susie called, she had a crawl going into the dunes. I finished the West patrol in the rain and headed to Susie’s crawl and she continued patrol. As I was observing the dune crawl, Susie called, she had a big crawl! A few calls went out for help. I am sorry if you did not get called, […clip…]. Thanks to all who came in the rain and worked so very hard.
We dug at the dune crawl but did not find eggs. I marked it as a false crawl and may go later today and dig. However the big crawl produced 113 eggs which were moved. Two inches of water was already seeping into the clutch.
Thanks for all your dedication, team.
