Back From Finland

Another great trip in Finland with the Karelia region once again turning up the goods! In the border zone between Finland and Russia we saw 11 different Brown Bears and 5 different Wolverines, at 3 different places. Including, incredibly, a male Wolverine that hopped, in that funny way that they do, through the forest before us as we ate breakfast! The clip below (sorry for the poor quality, I just had to grap it quick on a small camera when the Wolverine appeared) is of another one we saw from a hide. We also saw Forest Reindeer and Arctic Hare and birds such as White-tailed Eagle, Waxwing and Hazel Grouse.
