Finland: 21/04/14 – Day 5

It’s freezing in the hide this morning, I am currently watching out the window – there is nothing apart from gulls and ravens….oh and one wagtail 🙂

We got picked up and drove back to the centre, we dropped our bags off and went over for breakfast. Whilst eating breakfast Kari (the professional photographer) spotted a wolverine in the trees near the yard! It moved around a bit and then tried to get into some feed bags near a shed, which was rather amusing watching it tug away. On the way out from breakfast it was still there so managed to get a closer look! We sat outside for awhile to see if it would come back, when we had our cameras. It didn’t come back, but I did managed to get a blurry blob of a creature taken on my phone.

Afterwards we napped, went on a walk to the lake, came back and sat by the bird area where we saw a brambling, great spotted woodpecker and a red squirrel. We then had lunch and headed out for the hide for the night!

We waited quite awhile then the bears came! yay, the light was beautiful so I was rather chuffed! 🙂 Whilst waiting for the bears I did a bit of biding and saw white wagtail, green sandpiper and lapwing.

    • Thank you :), yeah it appears so, he wasn’t too bothered by them being that close although he did chase them off a few times when they did get that bit closer. Thanks! 😀
