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.
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.
