Well today was a pretty quiet day all round. There was no formal plan made yesterday evening and so this morning was spent back at base on preparations for the next few weeks ahead. This involved boarding up windows and cleaning duties. A stroll to the shop at lunch time and then this afternoon we just finished off the cleaning duties from this morning. We met with the others at the evening dinner and made plans for tomorrow which looks like we are to start nest searching. The fog has been present in the distance for most of the day and it has been cold again. A military chopper came in with some more expedition supplies and the local dust-cart was present today collecting rubbish and that was pretty much the day. I have uploaded some photos for this posting but these are some of the remainder shots from yesterday. Above shows yet more flowers starting to appear on the tundra.Above and below show Dunlin of the "presumed" race "Sakhalina" and this bird was part of a pair present in the marsh yesterday and the 2nd below shot is another one of the Red necked Phalaropes from yesterday.PS) I just want to say a massive "Thank you" for all of the complimentary, supportive and encouraging emails that have you have sent to me. So Thank you again and it is "much appreciated"
