North section - 03/09/2022

Wednesday, 9:15-12:40 no live newts. 483 dead newts
I walked with Elliott (@onyxrat) - thanks for all your help!
Weather: nice, a bit windy.
Coverage: from the Jones Trailhead parking lot to the second stop sign.
Newts: we documented 205 newt on the hill side, and 278 on the reservoir side - more newts are walking back from the reservoir now! Only one of the newts was fresh, the rest were very dry. About 3 were juveniles, I'll try finding them to add them to the project.
We saw many CA newt egg clasters in the little pond by Limekiln trail.
Other roadkills: Tylobolus millipede, caterpillar, glowworm beetle, fence lizard, slender salamander, a black salamander - either Arboreal Salamander (Aneides lugubris) or Santa Cruz Black Salamander (Aneides niger).
Traffic: 34 cars, 7 trucks, 3 motorcycles, 10 bikes, 9 parked cars (1 car in the farthest parking lot).
My observations of the day -
Also saw a merganser duck swimming down in Limekiln creek. I got a crapy photo with my Tough camera -
