Finland, Day Two

 Ural Owl
 Ural Owl
 Male Great Grey Owl
Female Great Grey Owl
 
A great day. Excellent views of Ural Owl and another pair of Great Grey Owls. Supporting cast included Black Woodpecker, Honey Buzzard, Temminck's Stint, Common Rosefinch, Red-backed Shrike, Short-eared Owls and Wrynecks.
 
Great to meet birding greats Killian Mullarney and Dick Forsman staying in the same hotel as us and leading a tour for Sunbird. Will try and get my Collins Guide signed.

Cracking stuff - i have the old ringers guide and managed to (one Autumn in the 80's) get Killians, Lars Jonsson, Peter Grant, David Hunt and of course Lars Svenssons autograph in it! - 2 of them are sadly no longer with us :-(.....

That must be worth something!
I did manage to get my Collins Guide signed. Mullarney -one of my heros big time- good to meet him.
