by AvastMH moderator
To help with comments about the new sites from November 2016 we have numbered them below. Either we will find out their real names, and/or a nickname will suggest itself over time. This thread is locked, so if you would like to suggest a nickname either make a comment after marking a picture, in which case start your comment 'Nickname'. Thank you 😃

'DragonEyes' Thanks to grannieannie for this nickname:
Identified as Cuverville Island by Sitandslide here: https://talk.penguinwatch.org/#/subjects/APZ000ax58
'Boatwrecks'. Luckily yshish recognized the boatwrecks here, and coldcounter confirmed. They are in Mikkelsen Harbour on D'Hainaut Island. Two notable land formations are highlighted.
Site1 . New name: SheathbillWalk Note the camera angle changes over the months so much so that I've ringed three identifiable rocks/formations.
SunsetStrip (was Site2 )
Site3 . There's a peculiar 'headless seal' shaped rock in this one, so it's now called 'SealRock'
Site4. We've named this 'TheChannel' and thanks to bienle123 for that suggestion
Site5. Nicknamed by bienle123 as 'RockSlide'. Looks a lot like Site 3 at first glance. But this has a few large central blocks of rock near the picture centre, and has a long view to a distant area of land top right (Site 3 has a beach at that point of the picture).
Site6. The square block shows how the camera has changed angle slightly over time. Nicknamed 'SteepStep'
Site7. The rock in the bottom left hand corner is the identifier for this site during darkness. Thanks to suzeroo for her comment on the lower picture so the nickname is 'SunChicks'
Thanks to asb2718 for the inspiration to name this site 'Maccapolis'
And I am exceptionally excited to report that an article in the Huffington post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/13/barrientos-island-antarctica-ice-free_n_5650827.html
which contained this picture which should be very recognisable - note the small point of land! I think that this might be Verde - would feel better about it if I could see a camera pole. The date of the Huffington picture is March 2014, but the date of the picture is unknown:
