Last Turtle Surveys

Although turtles are still nesting for a little bit, the sea turtle tracking season has come to an end. Below are some photos from my last two survey trips to the beaches at the northeast corner of the island. On October 27th, I found some hawksbill tracks and what looked like an unfinished nest. On November 3rd, I didn’t see any tracks.

On the 27th, I didn’t take a lot of photos, but I did get a few of a gigantic robber fly that was about an inch long.

On the 3rd, I couldn’t resist taking a few photos of pelicans at Baie de Petites Cayes. I also saw a painted lady butterfly (Vanessa cardui) for the first time since I’ve been here. This species is highly migratory, so the sighting doesn’t necessarily mean they breed here.
