Geese are leaving, ever to return back to Finland when the spring comes. Hundreds of thousand birds migrating in the autumn, to spend the winter in a much warmer climate. The trip south can be hazardous, but staying here would mean a certain death. So come the first cold days and nights and the birds somehow know when it is the best moment to go and then its bye-bye Finland.
For someone who loves birds, it is bittersweet. There will not be much to photograph or look at for many months. For sure there are birds still, but the masses are gone.
The last of the migrating birds are heading south as the first snow has started to come in midlands and north. Beautiful formations with different species doing different formations, others flying solo.
