Butterbur flowering


Butterbur        Harilik katkujuur        Petasites hybridus


At the same time as the colt’s-foot the eye-catching but rarely occurring butterbur flowers.

Where can we find the butterbur in nature?
The butterbur prefers a fertile fresh habitat with clayey soil.. The banks of water bodies, and also the verges of ditches and ponds suit, but the plant has also reached the seashore. Suitable habitats may also be found in humid parts of old parks.

Klaara on evening flight out of nest


Tawny owl      Kodukakk      Strix aluco



By today all owl chicks have hatched.


A brief survey: on March 30 we could see the first egg in the nest. The next eggs Klaara laid on April 2 and 5.


When exactly one month had passed, or on April 30, a chick hatched from the first egg, the second on May 1, and the last on May 3.
