Over the last few days I have been attending the European Ornitholigical Union Conference in Turku, Finland. This gave me the opportunity to hear about the really impressive research that has conducted, as well as getting to visit a historic city. Although I don’t get to see a whole lot of the country, I have been able to meet many new people, and see many new things.
Turku itself is a beautiful and safe city, with some buildings dating back a few centuries. Primarily a University city, it is home to about 150 000 people, and I was amazed to how much care and pride the residents have in their environment.
As with most ornithology conference, one of the days is spent on an excursion to some of the birding areas near the conference venue. Of the 5 options avalable at the EUO2017, I selected to go to Teijo National Park, which is about an hours drive from the city. What a beautiful park to visit.
