Turtle Watch Group volunteers find loggerhead nest

The first loggerhead turtle nest of the 2009 season was found in Seacrest Beach in Walton County on May 17. The nest was found by Turtle Watch Group volunteers Wayne Lofton and marked by Valerie and Wayne Lofton early Sunday morning. It appears the turtle scaled a man-made mound to find her place.
