We returned to Magadan town in the early morning in thick drizzle. On the way we had to fly a quadrocopter in the rain/shower at a nest, which had not been thoroughly checked. No chick was found.
The remaining trip along the flooded river was uneventful, apart from a small incident with a bear crossing river nearby. The temptation was too strong, so we come close.
So, the results were as follows: we had 1 chick on the Kava, 3 chick (plus one casualty) on the Chelomdja river and 1 chick on the Tauy river. Not a bad season for the Steller’s.
