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.
