European Brown Bear - BBC Wildlife Online Gallery

 

Myself and good friend Harry Read are both really pleased to share with the BBC Wildlife Magazine (Online section) a gallery titled ‘A year in the life of European brown bears’ featuring images from our ongoing project in the remote Northern Boreal forests of Finland, where the country borders Russia.

Collectively we have spent around 2,000 hours in the field (the equivalent to 83 full 24hr-days), with the anticipation of our next bear sighting. It, therefore, goes without saying that at times this project has been very difficult and frustrating. From large males smashing my remote camera-trap, sweltering mid-summer heat, and below freezing temperatures during early spring. It has certainly been a challenge at times…
