Owls, Woodpeckers and Grouse

FINLAND

Ornitholidays has now been visiting Finland since 1999 in search of the boreal specialities of the region.


We arrive at a time when the birds will either be establishing their breeding territories or will already have young at the nest. The itinerary has been designed not to be too ambitious in the distances we travel and also to concentrate on the special birds of the region, especially the grouse, owls and woodpeckers.


If rodent populations are at a high density this area of Finland is home to the superb Great Grey Owl, as well as Tengmalm's, Ural and Northern Hawk.


One other star attraction is the chance to look for Red-flanked Bluetail which nests in small numbers in this region.

We use just three centres for our stay, and we visit marshes, lakes, vast tracts of coniferous and mixed woodlands, river systems and fields. Throughout the tour we have the assistance of local ornithologists who know the whereabouts of breeding sites for many key birds. For those willing, we can savour a Finnish sauna and sample the local cuisine of reindeer, salmon and local berries!


Journey with us on our 13th tour to this fascinating and beautiful area, at a time when the days are long and the air filled with bird song.
