18 – 21 May 2019 – Oulu
The delightful and colorful Ruff are lekking at the eye level and feeding in a small water pool in front of the hides by the most important wetland in Finland – Liminka Bay in Oulu area. Get a diversity of Ruff images by joining this short break for keen wildlife photographers!
We have two sites for Ruff photography in Liminka Bay – a lekking site where the Ruff are displaying on a bank of a little ditch. Here you can photograph them at eye level while sitting comfortably in a hide.
Other site is a feeding site for the Ruff and other waders. Here, a shallow water pool opens in front of the hides making this site great for reflection photos – if the wind is calm. In the bright evenings one will get beautiful backlit images of feeding waders from these hides. The Ruff can do some lekking on this site making it possible to have nice lekking postures of the males in the water. Fighting action is also an opportunity here – are you fast enough to capture it?
