On Saturday we completed our fieldwork at Mukhrino by taking in our first round of BVOC samplers and measuring the soil water pH and conductivity. In the evening Roxane prepared the final sauna for after dinner. When I went for the sauna there was some torrential rain – it made for a great cooling shower!
We left Mukhrino on Sunday afternoon to come back to Shapsa – this time we first had a journey in the argocat – as the boat was not able to make it very near to Mukhrino. This was a cool journey – the argo coped with any surface it seemed and was pretty speedy too! We had four sightings of white tailed eagles while on the argocat.
