Mal’Minskiy Islands and Fyodora Bay

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

This small group of islets is part of the Dzygdzyrskiy Nature Preserve and we went zodiac cruising amongst them in the morning; we also hovered off mainland Russia to admire a couple of Steller’s eagles. The area is rich in wildlife, specially birds: puffins, murres, auklets, murrelets and again the Spectacled Guillemot.

After repositioning the ship some 30 miles / 45 km to the north we landed at Fyodora Bay where we went ashore and enjoyed a nice walk.

Morning zodiac cruise.
Birds everywhere.
And more birds.
We found 2 Steller’s eagles while cruising off the mainland coast.
