Saving the nest...come hell or high water (or BOTH!)
This was such an amazing effort!!! Yesterday, sitting in the sun watching the nest, we noticed something that we had never noticed before....the waves were suddenly 15ft high due to an offshore hurricane!!! That is 10 ft higher than the normal waves there. And we could see them coming up higher and higher towards our nest! But because of the quick action, of our amazing (exhausted, sunburnt dehydrated) team over 6 hours, we built and rebuilt wall after wall with our hands and buckets...and we only had 2 actual wave breeches over the nest!....Thank you HWF volunteers for all the hard work!! HUGS!
