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.
Season: spring lek 15th March – 15th May and autumn lek 15th September – 31st October
In early spring and in autumn, hide session starts one hour before sunset and lasts until late morning. During the most hectic lek, it is advisable to be ready in the hide already in the evening.
Group size: 1- 6 persons
140 € / single hide / morning

440 € / 4 mornings in the hide (110 € / person / morning ), package can be used alone or with a friend
