Nope. Announcements over this listserve at it. You will find that there
have been no Coastal Plain counts in NC for the past couple of years, owing
to poor results. Seems like every year there are a few folks who want to
help out on a Coastal Plain count, like at Croatan National Forest or
Wilmington/Southport or Pettigrew State Park. And, just because the count
compilers like Ed Corey and I might not be interested,* that does not mean
other folks cannot pick up the ball and do counts there or elsewhere *-- a
major pet peeve of mine. (Remember -- Ed and I live in the eastern
Piedmont, a long way from our count circles.)

If you are interested in doing a count, you can let me know. Counts need
to abide by rules of the North American Butterfly Association --

like Nags Head Woods, Kitty Hawk Woods, Duck areas -- etc. can certainly
fit within a 15-mile diameter circle. There is an already existing
Mainland Dare County circle, but we haven't done that in maybe 8 years -- a
long way from the Triangle, where sadly most of the observers have had to
come from, in the past.

But, you folks can start one out your way, like a 15-mile circle that
covers Nags Head Woods, Kitty Hawk, Duck, etc.
