Dipper in Bemböle 7.3.2015.

Wintering birds appear in Southern Finland in October–November,
and return to their breeding areas in March–April.
The birds encountered in Central and Southern Finland
during the winter probably breed in Norway or Sweden.

A manul or Pallas's cat at Korkeasaari,
the Helsinki Zoo, 12.5.2012.

These photos were taken through glass.
The cat seemed very curious about the
people on the other side of the glass.

The manul is a small wild cat from the
grasslands and mountain steppes in Central
Asia. It's classified as near threatened.
