10 years of Looduskalender forum – How it all started ten years ago

05.10.2018 - 13:15

The first Forum meeting in Alliklepa at the Looduskalender field site. Autumn 2008.

To tell it all from the beginning we have to look back ten years and across an ocean. Back then viewers of the black stork web camera of Looduskalender were from the whole world. By chance we gathered at that time in the Canadian Hancock Wildlife Foundation forum.

Entering autumn

05.10.2018 - 08:56


Astronomically autumn came on Sunday night September 23rd at 04.54 o’clock, or, when you woke up on Sunday morning it was already autumn.

We reached the equal day period but today the night was not yet longer than the day. But after the equinox the evening darkness arrives soon after sunset. Already within an hour we can see stars in the sky in clear weather where light pollution is slight.

On their migration wigeons (Anas penelope) have arrived in Haeska, on the green grass turf directly in front of the web camera. 

Today up to some twenty male birds were eating for hours and with unabated eagerness the salty grass that had risen out of the water   – wigeons often feed in coastal meadows, like geese.

Cranes "Soits 1“ and "Soits 2“ have left


When driving to work yesterday morning the Soitsjärve crane family were still at the Elistvere roadside at 6.40 to greet me but at 8 o’clock they left from there on migration as the transmitter data from  “Soits 1“ and “Soits 2“ today show.

Migration of cranes with transmitters advances

Dear Crane Friends!

The migration of the cranes with transmitters  “Aivar“ and “Hauka 3“  who set out early has advanced again.

“Aivar“ again made a long migration leap and late in the evening on September 19 reached the Hortobágy National Park in East Hungary, the same area where he made a long stop last autumn. But then he arrived there almost a month later, on October 10.  Evidently he will stay there for some time now too.

The weather for the weekend promised to be changeable but that cannot stop the autumn migration that proceeds at full speed. Millions of birds have already passed us and millions are still on their way to here. The time has arrived when mornings in the garden are again full of  birds and exciting!
