Last night at 3.41 and in the morning at 8.01 a lynx appeared in the webcam – the Animal of the Year . 

Eile öösel kell 3.41 ja hommikul 8.01 ilmus šaakalikaamera ette ilves – aasta loom. 

It seems that there were two different specimens; the night walker that showed itself only cursorily seemed to be an adult while the size, exterior and body language of the morning visitor seemed rather to be a juvenile. In any case a nice surprise and change from the mammals in the camera list up to now – mice, jackals, foxes and hares.

We will see if a wolf will also come as happened last winter when the jackal camera was about six kilometres away from here on the Metsküla shore. Then also  a dusky evening hour in early spring brought a female lynx with two offspring briefly into camera view.
