Day 1 - Finland


An exciting day at Wild Brown Bear Lodge. Waking in a new location for the first time, new sights and new sounds. Today was spent mostly writing material for the new website which needs to be published ASAP before the season kicks off. Ari Sääski (pictured) took me on the 1KM journey to the area where the hides are situated. Due to the fresh flurry of snow in the last few days, the tracks of wolverine and bear could be seen weaving around the trees as we walked to the hides.

Tomorrow will be an early start. A German photographer arrived late today and the bird hide will need to be prepared for him in the morning. There is the possibility of photographing from the bear hides in the evening and night-time tomorrow, which would be my first European Bear encounter.
