Young brown bear observing another bear approaching from the right
 
The Alutaguse brown bear webcam season this year has had the greatest frequency of visitors of all the four operating years. This season the bears were really easy to see from the shelter. Five different individuals were seen and nearly every day one or two brown bears visited the observation ground.
 
At the end of May we also saw in the webcam a mating pair and it was...

The piglets are quite small, maybe they saw the light of teh day some time in May.  Did the sows bring the piglets here before midnight to introduce them to the smell of danger?
 
So far the observation ground has also been visited by a boar leading a solitary life in summer. He has been caught in camera view together with a bear -  the boar kept a respectful distance to the bear.

Friday, a little before six o’clock in the morning, but for brown bears this is no longer early, in sunny weather they would maybe already have gone to rest.
 

A beautiful pair – the female with a slightly darker fur, busy on the observation ground for more than half an hour. In the cool weather of the last few days animals have been more active in general – or does it depend on the stand of the moon?

In May the heat period of female bears starts and so the ”ladies” get suitors trailing after them. The year-and-a-half old bear youths whom the mother bear has been moving around with up to now fear a...

The brown bear probably has the observation ground as the last stop on his nightly round, which need to be checked before the day’s sleep. The day is peacefully slept off somewhere in sunshine – somehow Vitamin D must be obtained; the weather that has stayed cool for long has not let the vitamin C flow – but just a little longer, forest citizens, and full spring with its generous gifts from nature is here.

Today a younger brown bear individual made a round of the observation ground in daytime - at about half past three.

An evening visitor. After the winter sleep brown bears look for anthills and demolish them quite industriously. Carcasses can also be found in the forest and such a matured mouthful sets the intestines working; the fast has lasted four or five months. Vegetable food is currently looked for from roots and tubers and last year’s cranberries are still...

The paw width of tonight’s last visitor was 15 centimetres
 
The autumn fast starts for our brown bears before falling in winter sleep; grain leftovers and apples are no longer to be found on the observation ground … all kinds of temptations must be abandoned to allow everything to proceed according to nature.
 
Sunlight is scanty; the battery feeding system has worked thanks to the ”golden autumn”.
 
The animals and observation ground were...
