Birds of Arctic - Lena Delta

Birds of Arctic  - Lena Delta

Fragile nature of the Russian Arctic

In the heart of Siberia, on it's very northern edge there is a fragile tundra world located on the islands in the great siberian river Lena delta. The spring and summer come here very late and just for a short period just enough for the tundra birds to hatch out their young. Each year in early summer many thousands of geese, ducks, swans, different pipers, gulls and terns concentrate at the nesting sites. You have a unique opportunity to be invited to this life's birthday, don't miss it!
