We have several Black Grouse lekking sites near Oulu in Finland. We make decisions about where we set up photography hides each spring according to the bird activity. Black Grouse lekking areas are located in open areas such as bogs or fields and all our Black Grouse lek sites are easy accessible.

We have single and two person hides with higher and lower angle shooting openings for cameras. Each photographer will have at least two shooting openings to use. Hides are usually situated so that it is possible to shoot either with frontal lighting or with backlighting. We can also set up portable tent hides to the lek sites.

Reviews & Experiences

"It was a breathtaking experience to watch the Eagle Owl. Thanks for making it possible! All worked fine and the Owl visited the feeder about five times. We got some nice pics."

"At the beginning of June, we had the wonderful experience to "meet" the Eagle Owl in your hide. We will forever remember the moment when the Owl arrived for the first time! It came back several times during the night to eat a bit of the hare. When the Owl wasn't there, we had a lot of fun photographing a large diversity of songbirds."
