One of the numerous large, deeply impressed, bare human-like footprints observed in the dune saddle at Area D; notice the clearly outlined toes, heel, and visible mid-tarsal break. 5 November, 2016. Copyright © 2017 Sanjay R Singhal. All rights reserved.

Substantiation of this Report, and the behaviours described therein, may be provided, for the most part, by my own investigations and experiences at Area D in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015,  and 2016.  I do not know of other encounters and/or sightings in this area, nor am I aware of any other investigations, either on-going or intermittent. Nonetheless, a cursory review of same suggests considerable activity.
The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are as follows:
- The small, tree-mounted branch assembly along the main path, beautifully constructed and interwoven, comprising marcescent components;
- The sharply reduced construction of the large, slanted-branch assembly immediately adjacent;
- The eerie stillness and quiet, experienced throughout;
- The possible branch alignment, along the main path;
- The repetitive tapping sounds, heard from the south ridge bordering the meadow;
- The beautifully constructed and interwoven branch assembly on the fallen tree, again comprising multiple components, some marcescent;
- The strong, emotional response experienced upon entering and leaving the woods;
- The possible grey mist observed in one of my photographs;
- The strange, elongated footprints observed on the main path through the meadow;
- The numerous large, deeply impressed, bare human-like footprints observed in the dune saddle, presenting no straddle or turnout, with clear mid-tarsal breaks; 
- The possible glimpse of movement in the woods, as I returned to the carpark.
These factors, alone or in combination with past experience(s), may be considered sufficient to confirm the presence of EC  at Area D in the autumn of 2016.
I have since returned to this area, where I 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, 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 certainty.

 EC, in this context, stands for “Elder Children”, as usual.
 Not as many times as I should have liked, but, well, there you have it.
