The bear camera year cycle is beginning to close.
 
Bears must start being restrictive with their food rations, and that must be done quite a number of weeks before going into winter sleep. Guts must become quite empty before „hitting the sack“. The next toilet tour will not be until early spring

Who opens the Alutaguse web camera will see raccoon dogs. They appear already in the afternoon and are busy almost to early dawn. Sometimes it is necessary to retire a little when the bear steps by on its tour. But even then screeching goes on close by to disturb the visitor.
 
Probably around 14 individuals are busy in the observation neighbourhood, two raccoon pairs with their springtime offspring and they have really fed themselves stout. The larger ones...

The owner of the territory demonstrates in all ways that he reigns here. From the beginning of autumn foxes have their own territories where others are not tolerated. The own territory is marked with excretions and that in conspicuous places – tree stumps, trunks of trees, rocks ...
Trespassing is of course practiced and the one to retire is mostly the invader but sometimes quarrels can develop. In August we often saw two young animals in action together.
 
Keeping company starts again in February, with the arrival of the...

The golden eagle has passed by our camera a couple of times during the season, and surely observed the situation even more often in flight, and that already for years...

Really serious business goes on at the viewing ground, there were 8 degrees of frost in the forest in the morning. Fat reserves must all be got in place under the skin. A fox – because they move alone on their territory -, a raccoon dog gang, wild boars, all visit the site but it is sensible for all to fear the bear. According to huntsmen animals are very well-fed this year.
 
At the end of October brown bears become more stationary, in the area where they intend to spend their winter sleep. Eating is necessary, as richly as possible, so...

The doings of brown bears living freely in nature are interesting to see. On Tuesday evening the first bear was in place already just after six o’clock and the recording is in colour.
 
An hour later the next bear arrived, but the image is already black-and-white as always in evening dusk

Brown bears really visit in camera view often and every night. There is enough food from nature in the forest, in addition the orchards of abandoned or ruined farms, but crop fields are mostly harvested. The tour to the observation ground is made from old habit. The excrements show that the bears go diligently picking cranberries

The bear turned up on the observation ground at about half past seven, and it had a plenty of company: a fox with a crowd of raccoon dogs, who were all of seven …
 
There are several videos on the forum from Tuesday evening: LINK

In cover of the early autumn dark the raccoon dog gets away with a scared yelp. The brown bears have arrived so silently, and it is truly remarkable how silently brown bears are able to move among the debris in the forest.
 
Once a day this pair of young bears pass the camera. Their food table is certainly not meagre, there is still corn in the fields in the neighbourhood, the cranberry spots are known to them … The fat reserves for winter are mostly produced from carbohydrates.

In the rain-washed forest two bears were busy already from six o’clock on Sunday evening. The ones that have been in camera view recently have as a rule come in the dark. The bears know each other quite well, it shows in their behaviour.
 
Other forest dwellers often come to check what is going on.
