Gordon’s Surprise for Alabama Point
Once again Peggy Lively and her team found a nest – this time on May 23rd. WOW 3 nests in 2 days. That’s a record for the Alabama Point team in May…..
Mary walked the West. Karen and I headed East. The wind was vicious and a soft rain was falling. As Karen and I neared Lei Lani , Paul called. He spotted a huge crawl and nest as he was drinking coffee from his balcony!!!!!!! Paul graciously offered to finish patrol for me and I headed to the nest site. Wow!!!! A big 41″ crawl was all over the beach and a very large nest area was evident. Those who could came and 91 eggs were quickly found by Papa Rick, our expert. Thanks to Mary, Maggie, Careysue, Paul, Karen,-Rick and Herman for braving the winds to help relocate the eggs. Awesome job!!!!! Our newbies are getting a lot of experience in the last two days.Their eagerness and enthusiasm is appreciated.
I cannot remember Al Point ever having 3 nests in May. We are off to a busy summer!!!!!!! Hip-hip-hooray!!!!
