Increase the loneliness

I walked today for two hours. I went to Vaakkoi and visited five lakes: Vaakkoi, Saaren-Musta, Iso Lehmälampi, Kämmenlampi and Väärä-Musta. It was sunny and warm, +24 °C. At one of the lakes I watched a pair of Gavia arctica, who were diving and making wailing sounds. Occasionally they crawled to land on a small island, where they probably have a nest. They were too far away to see what they were doing on land, and I didn't have binoculars with me.

The photograph was taken on May 8th in Vierumäki.
