We heard from Nige and Martin while they were transferring flights at Moscow on their long journey home from Anadyr.
They confirmed that the 17 chicks are doing well. Before they left they managed to build a 7 x 5 metre aviary and construct four rearing units on an area of tundra by an old army base.
16 of the 17 chicks are now outside, as they should be. They are all now aged between 10 and 14 days old.
