Canada Expedition Begins

At 455am tomorrow morning my alarm will go off and we will start a journey that is going to take us all the way to the north Queen Elizabeth islands, where our East Canadian High Arctic Light-bellied Brent geese breed. Due to arrive at Resolute Bay on Cornwallis Island sometime on Friday, it will be Monday before we get to Eureka base on north Ellesmere (near to where we found breeding colonies in 2007).  Will they still be there? Will last week's blizzards have put a stop to any breeding for this year? What other animals will we encounter: polar bears? wolves? Only one way to find this space...
