After looking for five hours on Ras Shaban beach in the Halat area, and just as we were ready to pack and leave for the night, Havda was spotted nesting in the early morning hours. A member of our team made sure she didnít escape while the rest of us took the car to her and started tagging her, At the same time, Maisoon appeared, after nesting right next to Havda, and she was tagged at the same time. They were both released at dawn.
