This year, Manomet staffers Trevor Lloyd-Evans and Shiloh Schulte are working with Roy, along with Olivia Hicks, our volunteer from England, and Eddie Corp, from Bethel AK, who also worked at the breeding camp earlier in the season. These four are joining up with the rest of Roy’s crew to survey and band shorebirds, and sample invertebrates at three camps along the Arctic Refuge coastline. Since I’m back at the office working hard on keeping them all funded and organized, Shiloh and Trevor will be updating you on their work as Roy’s project progresses. Enjoy this first post from Shiloh!

Running in burrows through the grass, poking out of hiding places under the rapidly melting snow, crawling under our tents, in our tents, standing on their hind legs to stare at us while we eat our lunch, waking us by trying to push under our sleeping pads, lemmings are everywhere around our camp and throughout our study area this year.
