Nest laid during flood

Quite unexpectedly our Project Officer discovered a newly laid nest when checking a nesting bank on 8th Dec. It was so unexpected as the river was in flood. However the river flows upstream in front of this bank and the turtle was able to swim out of the main flow of the river. This was nest number 65 which our group have protected during this nesting season. A very successful nesting season so far.
