Ospreys in Action, Finland, by Peter Cairns

Ospreys in Action, Finland, by Peter Cairns | Finland | Scoop.it
Wild Wonders has become like an old comfortable shoe – you only miss it when it’s gone. And for me - at least in photographic terms - it’s just about gone.

As the final ‘dream team’ images have piled in over the summer, I embark on my final mission, to capture probably one of the continent’s most celebrated conservation successes: the osprey. Ospreys are fish hunters so it seems sensible to go where there are lots of fish. And so to Kangasala in southern Finland. Not to a remote wilderness lake but a working fish farm!

Helsinki For Urban Travelers: 276th issue: Helsinki Wildlife: Be aware of the crow! | Finland | Scoop.it
Crow is known for being the bird of darkness or "the trash birds". Still, they are very veautiful birds for their shape and size. And they are hilarious too, if you watch what them romping around.

Anyway, today Ilta-Sanomat wrote about attack happened in Kumpula, Helsinki. A woman left her home in the morning, when suddenly something attacked her behind. It had sharp nails, so this woman though it was neighbors kitten. Soon she noticed two crow. They tried to attack her again, but now she put a bag over her head.

So if you come to Helsinki, be aware of the angry crows!
