Need to catch up a bit, two full on days!
On a downer over the spoon-billed sandpiper still. We need some good news.
Had some seriously close bear encounters and saw a wolf today. The bears are scary. I’m not sure what they would do, but we kept our distance as best we could and let them do their own thing.
The first one wanted to come right up to us. I was so glad that I was on the quad today and not on foot.
No spoon-billed sandpiper seen or heard on our search (Si and I) today. Nige and Jochen had only one sighting. The other two teams had three sightings apiece, in the warmer areas. I’m hoping the weather was to blame as it was windy and cold.
Maybe they are all on nests, fingers crossed.
