Another cold day up on Cobb Mountain. Only rained a little bit last night, and we were cozy and warm and dry in our tent. Today, it’s too cold to really do much field work, so I’ve spent most of the day in the Rec room, reading fanfic and doodling around on my iPad. We will go out for a four o’clock walkthrough, and maybe a couple of later ones as well, but I doubt there will be much turtle activity. So, another sort of long and boring day. I guess this is the dark side of field work, mwahahahahahaa! This might be the way the season ends – with a whimper, rather than a bang. Then again, if it warms up in the next day or two, we might get one more wave of turtles before we pack up our field camp on July 3rd. So, we’ll see. It’s been a successful season already, one way or another.
More tomorrow, unless I’m too busy and forget. We’re releasing more baby turtles tomorrow, which should be awesome, assuming the weather warms up a bit.
