We’ve had a last text from Nige before he left Anadyr. Very sadly a small chick died the night before last.
As we’ve reported before the survival rate of chicks in the wild is extremely low. So, to still have 17 chicks alive and well is better than we could have expected.
The good news is that Nige and Martin are on their way home. After ten weeks in the field, it’ll be great to see them. They’ll be taking a well-deserved rest and once they’ve found their feet again, we will bring you their further stories, photos and possibly even some video.
