Last nest hatches!
Not quite the final nest of the season - that nest, on Kite Beach, won't hatch until the 19th December or later.
The last nest in the hatchery, however, hatched on the night of the 5th December and was excavated the following day. It was a really small nest - only 33 eggs - but the hatching success was good - 23 out of 33.
Now the hatchery looks very strange - as if we are back to the beginning of the season, waiting for the first turtle!
