Our 24th field seasons begins!

On May 4th, the crew headed down to Limestone, transported by the M.V. Highlander and LBCS Director, Danny Robertson Thanks to many helpers who came along to assist in offloading all the gear! Most of the next week was spent unpacking gear, setting up the camp for the season and doing some general camp maintenance. The sun was out the entire week, so camp start-up was very enjoyable (especially in shorts!).

Night work began as usual on May 7th, although the first chicks did not arrive until May 13th. It came down funnel 6 just before midnight and weighed in at a healthy 33.5 grams. As of May 15th, there have been a total of 19 chicks from funnels 5-8.
