Already in winter the Eagle Club installed a camera at the nest of the golden eagles in Soomaa so that the watchful birds would be less disturbed by people moving around. The eagle pair visited the nest with varying frequency, brought new nest materials and marked it with fresh green twigs …

If you have a choice, then surely. But in the Estonian white-tailed eagles’ (Suvi and Sulev) nest with webcam there is not much choice – only one egg remains in the nest.

The second egg was broken on the morning of April 5th and the remnants  were removed by the adults from the nest.

Last year in the autumn we installed the web Camera at the Metsküla shore, in a site from where at about five kilometres distance in 2013 the first evidence came to prove the presence of the golden jackal   (Canis aureus) in Estonia.

Now we will leave the jackals on their own in Metsküla and bring to mind who has been seen and heard in camera view during the five months. 

Already in the evening at the installation of the camera the ringing howl  of two jackals sounded from the beach. The jackals here also howl at propeller-driven airplanes and the evening plane between Kuressaare and Tallinn almost always made the animals howl .

Tawny  owl             Kodukakk      Strix aluco

Observing the peaceful home life in the owl nest we can see that female Klaara has three eggs in the nest in the tree trunk.

So the first egg on March 30th, the second one on April 2nd and the third on April 5th. Let us hope that the clutch is complete
