On Saturday May 12th the bird tower birdwatching arranged by the Estonian Ornithological Society took place. From the event results were received from 13 observation towers where 148 species altogether were seen. The towers were visited by more than 70 visitors.

The bird tower watching day this time was sunny and warm everywhere. It was pleasant for the watchers and visitors to the towers, but in several places a smaller singing activity of birds was noted because of the warm weather. In many watching sites migration of Branta nad Anser geese was noted. They are currently continuing their migration to their Arctic nesting areas in north-western Russia and Scandinavia.

Early morning feeding


Starling    Kuldnokk        Sturnus vulgaris     


Yesterday evening the busy female bird allowed us glimpses of what seemed like a fifth hatched starling chick...

By early morning all six starling chicks were in the nest, the egg shells were tidied out of the nest box and are lying about somewhere on the ground nearby – the starlings do not hide the hatching of their chicks.

Badger      Mäger     Meles meles


When the adult has judged the surroundings to be safe the badger cub is allowed to leave the sett. We see it just for a moment – the new large and day-lit world does not seem tempting.
