The badger camera has once more turned into the red deer camera. From last year we know that the red deer begin to take more interest in the feeding ground only in November when permanent frosts arrive.

The red deer with the ten-pronged antlers that is munching at silage was the ”first swallow” of the deer season that has just started at the feeding ground. Male red deer (stags), with powerful or not so powerful antlers, hinds and young stags-in-the making as well as casually visiting forest inhabitants will surely turn up in the course of winter.

In previous seasons we have seen even over twenty-five deer at the feeding ground at the same time. There were surely more out there but there was simply not room for all in  camera view. Foxes, raccoon dogs and – more rarely – pine martens will certainly to come to check if there is something palatable for them too.

Wild boars have been numerous and steady “customers” at the deer ground in previous years but unfortunately  the tracks of the African Swine Fever that now has hit Saaremaa too are no longer far from here.

We will see what exciting or even unheard-unseen of things the camera on the deer ground will reveal!
