#1: The area around

(visited by Michael Leismann)

15-Jun-2001 -- This point lies about 20 km north of Haparanda in a large wet meadow, very near the border between Sweden and Finland. I could reach it very easily by walking along an old railroad for about 1.5 km. Some old barns are on that meadow, and the point is only 30 meters distant from one.

This wet meadow is very attractive for Curlews, and many of them were flying around and singing.
