Nesting Turtles

  I walk the dog early every morning before work, which means we see a lot of wildlife. Mostly we come across deer, turkeys, porcupines, squirrels and birds, but on Thursday morning, we came across seven turtles, which means it is nesting time! 

  They mostly nest in sandy soil in the sunshine, which means the sand pit that we walk by is ideal for them.  

 Although the dog was really well behaved and listened to me and left the turtles alone, I think we will be avoiding that trail for the next little while to let the turtles do their thing in peace. 

  Be careful driving too as many turtles are crossing roads to get to nesting ground!
