We’ve spent the early morning observing birds in the strait of Hinlopen. Then our morning landing was cancelled due to a bear ashore, walking exactly where we had intended to land. Instead, we’ve been proceeding further north for a walk ashore on a lateral moraine covered by snow. We’ve seen the polar desert, beautiful minerals, and fox tracks. During the afternoon, we went on a wildlife watch in the area of Bjørnsundet spotted many “pixel bears” through our scopes and binoculars. Some walruses were also hauling on some ice floes.
