White-tailed eagle     Merikotkas       Haliaeëtus albicilla


After a week nothing is left of the white-tailed eagles’ nest. After the storm the adults fed the eaglets frequently (in a storm fishing is not possible even for eagles) and kept close to the nest (providing support to the eaglets?).

Badger in the light nights

As a rule the badger goes out to forage in dusk but in the light nights now the time in the dark will be too short and badgers can be seen already in the afternoon.

 At Midsummer vacations start for many of us and there will be free time to rove in nature too. Some may have played with the idea to have a look at the Animal of the Year and planned a visit to a known badger sett, in the hope of meeting the owner. What is needed for  success?
Firstly, we should ask whether we disturb the badger with our visit? Certainly we do, but if we behave respectfully around his home and are not intrusive, the badger can peacefully go on with its life after our visit.
