The Nutcrackers are most likely to be found in the stands of Swiss Stone Pine such as the ones just beyond this junction. Look for the lollipop-shaped trees.

All the sites in this section are treated, in detail and with precise maps and directions, in my book ‘Finding Birds in South Finland’

This is the best-known site in Finland for Nutcracker. In several visits here I’ve also had Ural Owl, Hazel Grouse, Greenish Warbler, Blyth’s Reed Warbler and Red-breasted Flycatcher.

In 2010 I had Blyth’s Reed Warbler in the young conifers (foreground) and greenish Warbler and Red-breasted Flycatcher in the mature birches (background)
