Red Deer Camera on Saaremaa Season 2014 - 2015

Post by Felis silvestris » August 27th, 2014, 6:26 pm

The camera was placed at the Red Deer feeding place once again on August 27. During late spring and summer we have been able to look out for badgers and whoever else happened to pass there.

The Red deer feeding place is on the Estonian island of Saaremaa:

Some facts about Saaremaa island:

Saaremaa is with 2,673 km² the largest of the Estonian islands, located off the Estonian mainland in the Baltic Sea. Capital city is Kuressaare with about 16.100 inhabitants, on the whole island live over 39.200 people. Literally the name "Saaremaa" means "isles land".
Interested people find a very rich flora and fauna in the mild maritime climate of Saaremaa. About 40% of the island is covered with forests.
The island lies within the East - Atlantic flyway, the migration path of waterfowl. Each year hundreds of thousands of migratory birds visit Saaremaa in spring and autumn. The barnacle goose, mute swan, whooper swan, eider, shelduck and a great many other bird species have been given protection status.
Saaremaa has a wide variety of rare wildlife species, the coastal areas are famous seal habitats. Both, grey seal and ringed seal can be seen in the coastal waters around Saaremaa. But on the whole, the island is somewhat poorer in wildlife species than the mainland. Neither mole, mink, nor otter can be found here, the lynx and the brown bear are but infrequent guests.

Already last winter we have been able to watch the Red Deer (Cervus elaphus) coming to the feeding place.
The red deer is the fourth-largest deer species behind moose, elk and sambar deer. Generally, the male (stag or hart) red deer is typically 175 to 250 cm long and weighs from 160 to 240 kg, the female is 160 to 210 cm long and weighs 120 to 170 kg. Size varies in different subspecies. European red deer are mostly wearing reddish-brown summer coat. The males of many subspecies also grow a short neck mane during the autumn. Red deer hinds (females) do not have neck manes. Only the stags have antlers, which start growing in the spring and are shed each year, usually at the end of winter, as we could witness in front of the camera.

The webcam is funded by RMK (Estonian State Forest Management Center), designed and installed in cooperation with Looduskalender. The image is transmitted by a new generation Mobotix webcam, using infrared illuminators and is powered with solar panels. The system was assembled by Hatcam. The video stream is forwarded by way of mobile masts by Teetormaja and made accessible for viewers by EENet.

I saw the piggies yesterday night too, via my Kindle. The latest VLC beta version for android seems to be more stable than the past ones. (just a hint)
There were a lot of young ones with the group.

Hello maupa :hi:

Detailed informations about camera locations are never made public, to avoid "camera-tourism"

I hope you enjoyed your visit to beautiful Saaremaa! :nod:
