North Section: 5/10/2021

Coverage: North section, parking lot to stop sign
Date/Time: 05/10/2022, 10:45-12:40
Observers: Robin & Merav
Weather: Dry, high in low 60s
Newts: 5 adults and 1 juvenile (nice spotting that tiny one Merav!)
Other roadkills: Caterpillars, and a California Striped Racer pointed out to us by a nice/concerned concrete truck driver - not technically on Alma Bridge Road, but about 50' away on the road to the cement plant by the first speed bump.
Traffic: 10 Cars, 10 trucks, 4 bicycles.
Human interactions: In addition to the truck driver, we also had a good conversation with a couple walking their dog near the Limekiln parking lot. They asked if there was anything they could do to help, and they got info and a Biobliz card from Merav.
