Local natural disaster

The all-year-round clearing of the Velikaya Salma Strait, which used to host eiders and long-tailed ducks of the Kandalashsky Bay through winters, has frozen

Because of the severe frosts in the end of January, the glade is completely frozen. Eiders and long-tailed ducks, which gather here every year for the winter, have left shortly before. On February 5, the frost weakened, and a small clearing appeared in the Strait. But the ducks have not returned yet. According to the staff who have long worked at the biostation, this has not happened before. Where have the birds gone? Will they return this winter, or we will have to wait until spring?

The deserted Salma feels sad without their voices and splashing.
