So close

Shehyn stayed just off Hutchinson Island last night as we followed her around for hours. Last night wasn’t her night so we’re back out tonight. A perfect overpass by the weather satellite NOAA18 just gave our team a good location showing that Shehyn was located just south of the Ft. Pierce Inlet. We rarely see them turn back north while making their way to the nesting beach but she did. The satellite which is orbiting more than 800 kilometers above the earth picked up her signal and relayed quite a bit of data this evening. The team is packing up gear and will be following her as she moves along the coast looking for a place to nest.
