The easily movable web camera setup is now ready and installed in Saaremaa. This is the first time that we test such a mobile webcam setup through the Elisa mobile network, and it will be adjusted when needed. The image in real time is shown from the site where the beaver camera that is already familiar to our viewers is situated, about 50-60 m downstream from the beaver dam. About 100 metres downstream from this dam is another beaver dam.

READER’S LETTER and VIDEO: Encounter with bear

Translation Liis

On leaving home we never know how many sparrows on the branch we will see or if we will hear the nightingale singing in the shrubs at all, but when we go along a forest path there is always the dream deep down that we might meet a bear. But to be honest, even with the growing population of bears in Estonia it is almost impossible to meet them. The reason is very simple, bears deliberately avoid contact with humans and the occasions are few when the bear has not detected the human; in such rare cases it is possible to meet them. So it happened to me.
