And it arrived! When on Monday we still pondered whether the wolf would  show up  here then this morning a few minutes past 7 o’clock it was there.

It may be a lonely wolf in the area that showed up last winter too when the jackal camera was located about six kilometres from here on the Metsküla shore.

Last night at 3.41 and in the morning at 8.01 a lynx appeared in the webcam – the Animal of the Year . 

Eile öösel kell 3.41 ja hommikul 8.01 ilmus šaakalikaamera ette ilves – aasta loom. 

It seems that there were two different specimens; the night walker that showed itself only cursorily seemed to be an adult while the size, exterior and body language of the morning visitor seemed rather to be a juvenile. In any case a nice surprise and change from the mammals in the camera list up to now – mice, jackals, foxes and hares.

The video is a couple of years old. This year the water flow is extremely small and the water too muddy for recording a video


Ninespine stickleback    Luukarits    Pungitius pungitius    


The slim, spool-shaped sticklebacks have conspicuous spines on the back (dorsal) fin. There may be nine up to eleven of them, and in addition one on each ventral fin.

The thin peduncle or tail stem is noticeable. The lifetime of these small fish reaches up to three years. Most have a similar body length, five to six centimetres.
