Turtle nest
« on: October 06, 2019, 01:07:19 PM »
We walked past the Turtle nest a number of times during our 2 week stay. I imagine they are due to hatch fairly soon or maybe it has already happened?

Anyone in the area that can update us when it happens and any idea what species of Turtle they are - Green or Loggerhead maybe?

Cheers

Clive

I think they hatch at full moon. The moon's waxing at about 50% at the moment. I'll ask around to see if anybody knows.

The top of the nest was vandalised recently but the eggs must still be under the sand. Someone checks everyday and apparently the sand is sinking which is a sign of movement inside the nest

Looked at it today - perfectly flat and no sign of damage. Theory has it that they are due to hatch on Monday.

Not heard a whisper and it would be good to know.

I fear that if there had been good news we would have known by now - looks like the nest may not have been viable :(
