We have now all gathered in Moscow and are on our the way to Krasnoyarsk, where we will change flights to the Arctic. We can not wait until we arrive — it is a dream for several of us to visit this area.
The Laptev Sea walrus question has been in the air for more than fifty years among scientists. Do they belong to a special subspecies or not? All anecdotal information is at least 25 years old. However, we managed to identify a polar bear through a satellite image from the area. A white spot close to where the walruses should be. As a birder, any observation has to be noted – after all, almost nothing is known of this region. The only thing we have been warned about are the mosquitoes!
