13/01/2015 – Orne Harbour, 64 38 S 062 32 W

This morning we wake up to the beautiful scenery of Orne Harbour. The first continental landing in Antarctica waits for us. We set up our gear and start the hike up the mountain to enjoy the stunning view over Errera Channel. A colony of Chinstraps is breeding on the ridge and I fall in love with these little creatures immediately. We watch them for a while. They are pretty chatty this morning. Most of the chicks have slipped already and adults and kids communicate over the whole colony.
