Churchill Polar Bears 11th November 2015

My penultimate day in Churchill started with a sighting of mother and two cubs close to the airport (below); they thankfully then moved away from town, though I wasn't to encounter them again. The weather by this stage of my trip had become far milder, leading to some of the ice forming in the bay to break up, and postponing the freeze up. Last year, the Bay started to freeze on 13th November, giving the bears a longer season to hunt seals. I've included a few landscape shots in this posting to give an impression of the bleak beauty of the tundra, which I find so atmospheric.
