Desert Wheatear in Helsinki 30.11.2013

It has been very slow recently, but finally yesterday something happened. Jari Kuhlman found Desert Wheatear while he was walking with hes dog in Kivikko. First alarm came just after 3 pm and i was still at work. Today i woke up early to check my phone and only 2 minutes earlier new update came and bird was still in Kivikko.
I took my camera and binoculars, went to my car and drove to Kivikko in record time. Just kidding, i always drive with patience and no hurry.
There was big group of people when i arrived and bird was hiding at the time. Gladly it took just 5 minutes to find the bird sitting quite far away. I borrowed one telescope to get some record shots of the bird but it was too far..

Part of the people. 

First pic of the bird. Notice good camouflage. 

Slowly bird moved closer to us and finally i had change to use my 300mm lens.

Great bird. 

Bird was super beauty 1cy male and only 21st for Finland.. It was quite shy but i think that it just did not like the huge group watching it. Would you like? :)
After 40minutes bird took of and flies about 300m. It was little bit cold (-5c) and i decided to leave. Nice start for the weekend and this was new Finish-tick for me. Still got some changes to get 260 year ticks, this was number 257.
After this weekend i don´t have car anymore.. So it seems that i´m going to post less but maybe better quality. That means rarer birds,  more Estonia and other countries i hope :)

Hear you soon.
