Churchill Polar Bears, 3rd November 2015

After 2 days and nights on the train from Winnipeg, I arrived in Churchill on a beautifully crisp, sunny morning. The bear below is the first I saw, but rather disturbingly there was also a male at Bird Cove consuming the remains of a cub, which I presume it had killed. The most awe inspiring experience took place in the evening, which I saw the northern lights for only the second time in six years at Churchill in November. Usually it is too cloudy at this time of year for them to be visible.
