Not yet, but soon. I think the cuckoo won't go so soon as well.

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:

so late? :laugh:

I agree with cougar, a nice replacement of the wild boar webcam.

@ Kitty: I will read it later, I'm going to bed now
Good night everyone :wave:

Thus far, no night time forest animals have come around, at least not while I watched. The cuckoo just roused a moment ago & gave a few coo-koos, but now only the night insects make noise. I did see a ghostly sort of image earlier, floating by the cam & going in several directions by quick turns :shock: -- but I am pretty sure it was a moth or other night insect fluttering by. :mrgreen: (Or maybe an elf, I really don't know!)

I go to Käsmu cam to break up the monotony, & the night sky there is gorgeous with colors. It seems by now that sunset sort of blends into sunrise in north reaches of Estonia. :loveshower:

I just heard a noise that was definitely motion but I did not see anything.

Already the sky is lighter than the forest.

Darn! I went to another forum for a minute, & had Youtube playing instead of the cam! Did you see anything at all, Alice?

The sky does seem to be brightening quickly.

Dogs have begun barking from afar, & the cuckoo started up again for a few minutes.

Edit, 2:35-- Yes, the cuckoo is definitely awake & back on his 2-second cycle. :D

:faint: SOMETHING! Moving quickly at center behind the tree line. I THINK a beaer, but not sure. I am recording right now just in case I can get it, but I think I was too slow.

:cry: :rant: I did not get it in my video. Just the cuckoo. so i got rid of the video & will start over. Darn it! But you saw it, too, Heidu. I feel better knowing it was not just my eagerness letting me see things.

NOW I AM GETTING IT!! Behind the big pine tree at the right. Will post when I get the whole video. It IS a bear. :loveshower:

Edit, 3:06-- It is still there. But I am uploading video & can't record at the moment.

A bear lurks in the forest! (I should have waited to record-- much better view later as it went off cam to the left.) Video best viewed if you right-click & choose watch on Youtube.




These photos are not very good, the bear is blurry as it makes its way quickly to the left & off cam.

It is not too difficult, Heidu. You need to either have an account to where you can upload the photos (as Photobucket or Flikr.com), or do as I do & use a site like ImageShack that does not require an account. This works OK if you don't care to have a site other than here where you share photos. With ImageShack (http://imageshack.us/) you simply click the browse button to chose which photos to upload from your computer, then after that, click upload button & after they get uploaded, copy the "forum code" text & paste it into a posting here.

For a while in the night I thought there was no mic (that it had died or been eaten) but now the cuckoo has been audible for hours and I did hear that movement -- the only thing I heard it got much lighter.


I saw nothing. So you guys were much luckier than I.

I saw a raven earlier and more recently sun glinting on a spider web.
