From Estonica.org, I found this
http://www.estonica.org/en/Nature/Locat ... opography/

The North-Estonian Coastal Plain includes a narrow belt of land between the Gulf of Finland and the Baltic Klint. Its width is from a few metres to 20 km. The area includes several peninsulas and bays, and the islands of the Gulf of Finland. Low and swampy lowlands also occur west and north of the Lake Peipsi depression and in the Lake Võrtsjärv depression. The Alutaguse Lowland is situated north of Lake Peipsi.

I was always sad, when the winter boar camera ended at spring. So I welcome this summer woods' camera from all of my heart :loveshower: :loveshower: :loveshower:
So far no animals, but the big bumblebee and the cockoo, though. And the cockoo "works" even at 3.11, as now, lol. 8-)
But I hope, now we can see also the elves (and I don't mean these ridiculous little winged creatures, fairies) dancing, especially at St John's day's eve, as much as Estonia is the "land of the elves, witches and werewolves, lol :headroll:

Well well well... Is that my silly eyes and/or wishful thinking, or the cam truly makes tricks at night (or I spelled it, lol), but I really saw something... big transparent shadow passing the cam from left to the right.. It wasn't the animal, no bug also, so I have no idea, what it could be - a spiritual or ghosty creature indeed :unsure: It was size of a child and moved right under the cam, on two feet, so no animal. And this transparency, hm.. Wisers, can you explain this?

Good morning. :hi: Early morning insects sounds & bird song. Cuckoo birds have a sing-off contest. No bears, yet.

Many thanks for the translation, Liis.

Viewing full screen is interesting - there is such a wide area, and lots of little movements to look at. At the moment it is changing light and shade as branches move, but each one has to be checked in case it is an animal, bird or ghost!!

I can't imagine what cougar saw - that transparent thing on two legs!

In fact, I didn't see the legs :) Only the head and shoulders (it seemed so), and it moved, AS it walked on two legs. I also can't imagine, what was that. It was just very strange, to see it just after I wrote about the elves, lol. But surely, it didn't seem much like an elf, more like gnome or goblin or just a "woods' spirit". I honestly don't know. Maybe it has a totally logical, simple "normal" physical explanation, I just tried to describe, what I saw, lol. Bit spooky, though :)

Really interesting, cougar.
I have seen the way the webcams produce an apparently transparent image - for instance, when a bird is leaving the nest. The fast movement is like a blur to us, looking at our screens.

I probably won't get up at 1 am to look for it, though!!
I know what you mean - moving as though on two legs.

I saw some birds too, and true, it was very fast move, like a quick, transparent shadow, a flash. But this wasn't absolutely like it - it moved quite slowly, like a human walks quietly, searching the better path through the grass and blueberries. That's what made me curious about it, bc at this slow speed, as it walked over the whole screen, it should of been more clear, if you know what I mean :innocent:
