Here are the instructions to find the PALLAS'S SANDGROUSE location inLappeenranta, which is 300km east from Tampere and 230km NE from Helsinki(good main roads):(I hope the link works),28.195596&daddr=&hl=fi&geocode=&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=0&sz=15&sll=61.033749,28.193364&sspn=0.015442,0.055747&ie=UTF8&ll=61.03244,28.19272&spn=0.015443,0.055747&z=15>

Leave your cars to the side of the end of this Palosuonkatu road.From here walk through the gate (will be open during the day until 3 p.m.)but if the gate is closed (tomorrow its Saturday and if you are early) youcan turn left some hundred metres before the gate (a bigger road you can'tmiss it) and in the end of this road there is another gate which can bewalked around. So walk right until you are on the main gate (inside now).Keep on walking right from the main gate, walk some hundred metres (maybe300) and follow the road towards right, after a storage building follow asmall path right and walk 200-300 metres until you see the pools. For surethere will be many other birders too. Most of the Finnish birders will knowthe rules that must be followed! But to re-emphasise: Stay on the roads and pathswhen you walk to the site instructed and stay patiently in one position until thebird shows up! As Martin Helin stated, there will be some organized searching IF and ONLYIF the bird cannot be found otherwise (Janne Aalto)
