-Sunny and warm (25°C) with minimal, thin, hazy clouds
-Light breeze (branches moving)
-This site was located just across and in ~ 10m from the footpath on the opposite side of the path from the previous bog site
-Biting flies (particularly mosquitoes and blackflies) worse in the bog compared to the Welcome sign site visited this morning
-Walking to the sites, many Lycosids were observed sitting on or running across the white reindeer lichen that blankets most of the area
-This particular site had more trees (primarily Black Spruce) than the last and more woody debris to try and search around
-The new “claw machine” method of catching spiders by using a sporting dish to find and forcep them was much more effective; only 11 Lycosids escaped
-No Salticids were found
-Most of the Lycosids found were relatively small (<1.5cm in length)
-While walking along the path in a particularly wet area my boot, and leg with it, disappeared disappeared into the bog...which came back to the research station in my boot no matter how many times I dumped it out
