2016 in review – Seasonal trends

As with prior years, June and July were the prime months in which turtles were detected. Thirty three of them were in that window, with the first couple of weeks in June seeing the most movement. August and September fell flat, with one one turtle being found. We had none after September. That’s a little out of character with prior years. It was much more typical than in 2015, when a warm and wet winter prompted a box turtle to cross the road in front of the Withrow family at Christmas. 

Why does the turtle cross the road? Beats us. We asked this one. Not chatty.
