We’ve just seen a bear with a cub in Luvenga, ~100 meters from the Nature Reserve camp. Too far to photograph though from the other side of the bay, where we were. And last week there was a herd of seals, 50-60 oof them, also in the Luvenga bay.
And there is a report of a bear shot in the Niva-3 district of Kandalaksha yesterday. Spring is here I guess..
