"CVA continues to closely monitor other nesting sites along Lilleys and Main Beach in Boyne Tannum and we are looking forward to seeing the flipper patter of many more hatchlings this season," she said.

The first nest at Tannum Sands main beach has not hatched yet, and was due to hatch on January 17.
