First nests at last
After 14 days of full patrols we finally have two nests on Sal. They were laid within an hour of each other and within a few metres on Algodoeiro (west coast). They were both at risk - one from flooding by high tides and the other from roots that would damage the eggs, so they were moved to the hatchery this morning. One nest had 110 eggs and the other had 89. At last the season has started properly!
