This fall, about 500 000 migrating Barnacle Geese were seen resting at various locations in South-Eastern Finland. That´s half of the estimated total world population of 1 million. These guys are looking for a landing spot among 1000 of their peers, not long before sunset near the town of Lovisa.
And no, the birds are not particularly dirty. If, however, you found this post through a search word, well . . .
Lovisa, late September.
