Turtle Watch

This is the time of year turtles are locating ideal spots to build a nest and lay their eggs. An ideal spot is in sand or loose soil where they can easily dig a trench and lay their eggs. They also look for spots that are exposed to the sun so the heat will penetrate the nest and incubate the eggs. Gravel/sand pits are ideal and also the gravel embankments along the side of the roads are usual spots.

These creatures encounter many hazards during their life time and when they venture near roads automobiles are a major hazard. Please lets be vigilant.

Don Hill reports he has seen at least 12 nesting along the side of the road where the culverts are
passing through the swamp area before the hunt camp.

Also he has observed  them by the road at the sand pit area and the flooded area where the s-turn is, about 3 kilometers in on Fraserburg Rd.  Mostly they have been big snappers but there has been a number of (I have seen 5) painted turtles up on rocks along the shore lines.  I Have not
been around the lake here but people are saying it seems to be a big year for painted turtles.
