The video of the cormorant colony from the Nigula Nature Reserve was recorded by a drone

The video was recorded on five different days in September and October. On some days they were unbelievably many, practically all the branches at the water edge were occupied, and there were as many birds in the water.

The badger is a cool creature, never mind that he has surrendered the title of Animal of the Year to the roe deer. It makes no difference to him and he gets on with his own life as ever.

He has guests and some tend to arrive without notice when the owner of the burrow is not even at home himself. He keeps busy, tidies both himself and his home. Socializes, sleeps, sniffs fresh air and enjoys the sun even if it was sparingly offered this summer.
