... of false tracks and one nest! To find the nest you follow the tracks until you find a flattened area of sand, then with a stick you carefully prod the sand until you find an area about 40-50cm down where the sand starts to give way then bingo, you have your nest! The nest we found was huge, it had 129 eggs in it (normally they have 80-100ish) and it took is half an hour to collect the eggs to move into the hatchery. The eggs are about the size ...

¡Hola todos! So, the video of our casa (house) that we're staying in didn't upload last time because it was too long. Fear not, we have taken a shorter one and are posting it right now. We have had a great time so far in Escondido, which means "hidden" in English, and the town definitely lives up to its name because we can't even find it on here to pin to our map ( sorry Dad, use the GPS). We went out to a local karaoke bar last night ...
