Folly’s First Nest of 2014 has arrived!
Momma Turtle passed up (or didn’t quite reach) Kiawah, and nested on the edge of a grassy area at Folly’s FAR WEST end, past the new groin and the big tide pool at the County Park.
Many thanks to Linda B and Lars for finding the tracks, confirming the nest, and moving 103 eggs to a safe place where they’ll develop into hatchlings.
The clutch was relocated to protect it from tidal flooding above and below ground.
Sea turtle nesting season has officially begun on Folly Beach!
