Hatching season midpoint

We’ve passed the halfway point of the hatching season, which should continue through the end of September if the hurricanes stay away. Nest 31 at Sandpiper Beacon, 17403 Front Beach Rd, will be excavated Monday 5:30 pm. Use access on west side of motel (parking limited). We “excavate” nests to count hatched and unhatched eggs, and any live hatchlings still in the nest are released into the Gulf.
