|We stayed two nights near the old
village of Point Lay, on an island a couple of miles from the new village. The last night
we stayed in the building of the search and rescue team.
Not many waders, just a couple of Lesser-Golden Plovers and Semi-palmated Sandpipers (feeding on Walrus carcasses). Quite a few birds on the sea, but also a group of Bowhead whales came quite close to the shore.
