Wolverines & All That!

In a word... SUCCESS ! I have just realised a life-long ambition in Finland, namely seeing Wolverine (in fact seeing 8 different Wolverines: 3 adults, 3 kits and 2 juveniles). We (4 friends and I) spent 4 nights in 2 different wildlife-watching hides in Karelia in Eastern Finland. The wildlife observations we were treated to was way better than we had hoped for. In another word... STUNNING! In addition to the Wolverines we also saw 8 different Brown Bears and a pack of 5 Wolf. This shot here shows a Wolverine foraging on a tree-stump a few yards from one of the hides. I will post more photos and notes on all this in the coming days.
