A late in the sea turtle nesting season Logggerhead turtle crawl was discovered in Nags Head this a.m.
The NEST response team gathered and Rich soon (in about 4 minutes) found the nest egg cavity and one egg was taken for DNA analysis.
The nest was set up in quick order by the response team and all departed with smiles.
