At Suininkikoski, east of Kuusamo, where a lake ‘empties’ into a fast flowing river open water can still be found. The last morning of my trip we went to this place to look for Dippers (Cinclus cinclus/Waterspreeuw). About 5 birds were present, one of them was even singing in these icy waters.
Again, many thanks Olli for taking me around, your help was much appreciated! I would also like to thank Jari and Leena of Finnature for making this trip possible on very short notice. I will definitely come back to wild Finland!
