On Sunday and Monday night a beautiful swan migration took place; with it the first swans provided with GPS transmitters also arrived in Estonia.  Three of them stay in Pärnu and two at Matsalu bay. The birds can be recognized from the white neck ring with a black solar powered battery.

In case anyone happens to visit these two locations please take a look. It would be interesting to know how large the flock is, what the birds feed on, how many of last year’s young swans are there in the flock?
