Our friends Murmanbirds report:
July 31, 2015 with the support of the World Wildlife Fund ended the first part of the field work in the territory of the Regional Natural Park “Rybachi i Sredny Peninsula”, aimed at identifying potentially suitable locations for organizing tours for lovers of ornithology. As a result of the first results lead to the conclusion that the area of the park is one of the most interesting locations for birding in the Murmansk region. Among the bird species encountered – Rough-legged Buzzard, White-tailed Eagle, bird colony on the Cape Sharapov. A key finding was the previously unknown colony of northern gannets on isl. Big Anikiev, there are about 500-700 birds. It is one the largest known colonies of gannets in the Murmansk region.
