I am Kairo Kiitsak, a young nature enthusiast. I will tell you a little story about a thrilling encounter. On the evening of May 21st I decided to go for a walk in the Simuna forest in Lääne Virumaa, hoping to see wild animals. The weather was moderately warm and sunny. When I had entered the forest I heard at once that someone rustled among the branches. On closer inspection it turned out to be a roe deer. After the meeting with the deer I moved quietly on to the peat bog where I noticed grouse cocks. I didn’t disturb them and moved on along the road.
