     VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - More than 100 loggerhead turtle eggs have been moved to the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge after the mother picked the wrong place for her nest.
     Media outlets report that the turtle laid 115 eggs under the sand at Virginia Beach's busy Oceanfront.
     Refuge biologists say the beach isn't a safe place for the eggs. On Monday, the eggs were moved to the refuge after a volunteer saw the loggerhead turtle lay them and then return to the ocean.
