Dippers in Inari

Today was a beautiful day in Inari, at the very top of Finland.  There is a rapid area Jurmu-koski where about 20 dippers are wintering.

White-backed Woodpecker

I went out on Sunday to look for Bearded Reedlings in Espoo coast line without results. When coming to Laajalahti I found many photo takers and one rarity, a white-backed woodpecker.  The bird is not shy but allows photographing from as close as five meters.

Thursday Theme “The Law of Murphy”

Here the law came true for a Siberian Tit. He thought finding some food but hit a fishermans fly.

Tree Creeper

I lured tree creepers by playing their singing from my i-Pod. Worked very well.

Porkkala Peninsula

I went out to look for long-tailed tits in Porkkala. I did not find those, so I took landscape pictures.  Here is one panorama.

First of March in Inari

We visited (together with my brother Heikki) Neljän Tuulen Tupa in Kaamanen, Inari.  They opened this season today and we were the first customers. There will be visiting many bird watchers and photo takers soon.
