After 5 October 2016, on 6 October, we sailed from Kamp village on the Stettiner Haff lagoon in Germany. As there was storm, we did not sail further than the estuary, not continuing on the rough Baltic Sea. Already inland, there were white waves.
At 7:45, our ship departed. Great cormorants flying.
At a bridge, great cormorants resting.
Two scaup ducks swimming.
And many more mute swans.
We pass Grosser Wotig island. When we passed it north to south a few days ago, this wetland island was mainly land. Now, however, when we pass the island from the south to the north, the storm means that many reed beds and the lower parts of fences are under water. Cormorants and other birds can still use the upper parts for resting.
A little gull flies.
A flock of flying mute swans passes.
We pass the village north of Grosser Wotig.
We sail on the Peenestrom.
We reach Peenemünde, where this river flows into the Baltic Sea.
Great cormorants rested at the harbour.
This area is well-known for sea eagles.
We will meet them in the next blog post about Peenemünde. So, stay tuned!
