Substantiation of this Report, and the behaviours described therein, may be provided, for the most part, by my own experiences at Area D in 2008 and 2011;[1] [2] I do not know of other encounters and/or sightings in this area. Nonetheless, a cursory review of same suggests considerable activity.[3]

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are as follows:

  1. The strong, unpleasant odour noticed when we first entered the reserve;
  2. The utter stillness and quiet as we progressed along the main trail;
  3. The sound of movement in the brush, seemingly following us through the woods;
  4. The numerous large, human-like tracks observed on the trail in the woods;
  5. The numerous large, human-like tracks observed on the trail in the meadow;
  6. The sound of movement in the brush, from the wooded dune hills;
  7. The numerous large, human-like tracks observed on the dune slopes;
  8. The unusual long, slanted-branch assemblies observed in the woods, crossing the trail and seemingly directed towards the meadow;
  9. The hidden branch assembly observed in the woods;
  10. The small, beautifully crafted branch assembly observed at the base of the hill;
  11. The large, human-like tracks observed on the dune slope as we progressed to the beach.

These factors, alone or in combination with past experience(s),[4] may be considered sufficient to confirm the presence of EC[5] at Area D. Additionally, I have returned to this area numerous times, and have experienced some startling observations and encounters. Further investigation may provide additional information regarding possible habitation in this area, either permanent or itinerant.

A number of subjective events also occurred. While these cannot be considered conclusive evidence, neither should they be discounted. Although it is reasonable to review the impact of non-objective stimuli in this Report, such effects, while personally quite vivid and at times overwhelming, are nonetheless nearly impossible to substantiate with any measure of certainly.
