The long, straight scratches observed in the soft, black dirt of the main path into the reserve at Area D, immediately adjacent to the large, slanted-branch assembly, where other, similar scratches have been observed…in the exact same place. 7 November, 2016.

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 strange, eerie silence, experienced throughout;
- The newly configured Pin Oak (Quercus palustris) leaves on the small sapling;
- The long, straight scratches in the soft, black dirt of the main path;
- The newly drawn sign or marker in the sand of the clearing, apparently oriented to the dingle;
- The sounds of movement in the woods;
- The loud, heavy thrashing in the brush.
These factors, alone or in combination with past experience(s), may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC  and possibly something else at Area D in the late autumn of 2016.
The disorientation experienced in the dingle may be considered a personal infrasound event, lacking any other definition; however, it did not prevent me from continuing my field work, nor has it prevented me from returning to Area D. Such effect upon my physical and perceptive senses suggest some type of sensory manipulation, although further clarification is almost impossible to confirm.
I have since returned to this area, where I have experienced some startling observations and encounters. Further investigation may provide additional information.
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.
