But isn't it difficult to live a normal life surrounded by water - for humans and mammals ?? It looks bad! There was seen on the video a White Stork nest and a White Stork there on the nest! The storks of course do not feel so bad. Hm.. :puzzled: perhaps there are not much fish in the flood water..

That flood is there every year. People have conformed to that I think.
Hope Aivar Ruukel(by the way he gave interview in that video)could tell us.

...and the water level is long past last year's highest (orange band, submerged now :rolleyes:) and steadily approaching the 1956 peak, green band on tree on right hand side.

(Live camera image HERE, in case anyone has lost the URL)

EDIT: band colours corrected :blush: :blush: , thanks, Jo!

I hope so. The snow is still melting. I last went there in Febr, I´m quite sure it´ll take some more time to melt it all.
