July, 30. The Kheta ranger’s station

July, 30.  The Kheta ranger’s station

Due to drizzle and rain, we decided to stay on the ranger’s station. I managed to re-visit the nest closest to the station, and confirm that one chick was there.

The chick was just visible at the edge of the nest.

The rangers do not take any chances, and usually carry rifles as bear protection.

Another interesting observation was about the gulls. In the sea of Okhotsk and surrounding areas the Slaty-backed Gulls are the most common on the rivers and coasts, whereas on the Kheta we saw Vega Gull, another species. 

At the end of the day we fired up the sauna, and tested the world famous Kheta steam.
