The Odyan Bay survey: a looong day….Continued...

August 2, 2015.

The circumnavigation of the Staritskogo Peninsula was rather trivial, despite choppy waves. The wall of rain was still lurking both ahead and behind us, but nevertheless we pressed on.

Our beloved nest at the Orlinaya Bay (Eagle Bay) was occupied after a year of emptiness and had one chick.

The nest at the Svetlaya bay had 2 chicks.The pair at the Nedorazumenya island was occupied, but without chick. This pair has built a new nest.

In total the Staritskogo stretch had 3 nests with 1, 1 and 2 chicks...better than usual.
