White seagull-2006...

After re-reading the diary again I made certain of what a splendid expedition we have made in 2006. I was just overflowed with pride. Severnaya Zemlya, Franz Josef Land, Victoria Island...How many places we have been all around, how much have we seen and how many results we have brought for science...

It was year when birds' grippe frightened the world with its unpredictability and Russia was a chairman in Arctic Council. The necessity of expedition was caused by uncertainty of situation, developed in high arctic ecosystems under conditions of temperature rising and menace of birds' grippe spreading. Proceeding from menace of dangerous virus spreading to the high latitude European Arctic, the main task of our expedition was studying of migrations and sampling in order to state whether there existed polluters, viruses and other pathogens.

There was also anxiety about condition of several kinds of birds and among them white seagull - the kind which have been put in Red Book of Russia and Red Book of the World. The expedition was aimed at conduction integrated ecological researches on the islands of Karskoye and Barents seas, where 70% of this kind of birds nest.

That was a real partnership in the Arctic. And what an experience the glorious helicopter pilots of FSS aviation had. After those flights there were also flights to North and South poles on Mi-8. Experience is an accumulative thing and each flight goes into moneybox of success and professionalism.
