Wednesday 9:00-11:15 am: 78 dead newts, no live newt!
Weather - Cold at first, then nice. Light wind. Last rain - 3/18-19. Rain MTD 1.82 in, YTD 11.56 in per http://www.weathercat.net/wxraindetail.php
I documented a total of 78 new dead newts, at least 9 juveniles (added to the project), possibly more.
The newts on the first mile (up to the boat club) are also part of the longevity study, and were documented the day before at 9 am and 4 pm. The 9 am photos also have the ruler next to the newt. Newts photographed without a flag were either found after 9 am Tuesday (2 individuals), or on the 2nd mile (29 indiv.).
Other roadkills: millipedes, centipedes.

Coverage: from the parking lot to the second stop sign.
Traffic: 10 trucks, 23 cars, 1 motorcycle, 4 bikes, 13 pedestrians, and 23 cars parked by the road and in the parking lots (no cars at the far lot).
1 tiny dried newt was found in front of HTH #3. I saw the HTH team near #1.
