Wild reindeer - Finland

Members of the Cornwall Wildlife Trust Photographic Group travelled to Finland overnight yesterday for the IFWP annual congress at Kuhmo near the Finland - Russian border.

We arrived at Helsinki at 11 pm and flew on to Oulu on the Baltic coast arriving at 01:00 today. There was then a long leisurely drive across country looking for wildlife en-route.

Dibs spotted 2 moose lurking in the forest edge but they fled when we got the cameras out.

Fortunately Delia spotted a reindeer about 50 miles farther along the road and this one let us get some photos albeit through lots of tree trunks!

Hopefully there will be a few more blogs to come soon.
