Jackal; Golden jackal      Šaakal or harilik šaakal        Canis aureus


In full winter fur the animals look much sturdier. The cautious animals are busy in full daylight. Of course they are tempted by the smells of offered food but about this we have already written earlier.

The feet of three mallards are visible; they are on their way upstream to even  shallower water

Mallard         Sinikael-part       Anas platyrhynchos


For the first time we saw the plundering visits of mallards to the trout spawning ground three  years ago – the images were quite rare. But the sounds of ducks near the web camera at the spawning ground were heard already a year earlier.

The water level in the trout spawning place is really very low. The frog had probably crept into a turf at the brink, a little higher up than the spawning area to spend the winter but the cold weather and ice cover forced it to search downstream for deeper water where it would be possible to dig into the bottom mud once more …

Catching such images is not common. Wintering frogs have plenty of enemies

Videos recorded in the last days of November, in the same area as the web camera site – where else. In this video we can see that the older individual is unwilling to share the food with the younger animal

The animals often behave depending on their momentary mood and temper.
