Waders in pouring rain

On Thursday [August 31] we finished transmission from the wader camera at Haversi beach in Noarootsi for this season. The migration of woodcocks still lasts until October. For the organisers it was a new experience that helps further development of camera positions and the transmissions.

The strong western winds last weekend caused a rapid rise of the seawater level and by Saturday morning the sea already splashed only a few centimetres from our camera, on Sunday there was already deep choppy sea.

Before moving it the doings of waders could be observed directly at the camera and it was a good opportunity to identify bird species. Determining waders is otherwise a tricky enterprise even for experienced birdwatchers because of their similarity.

The birds are busy around the camera. Margus Ots starts on Monday with introductions to the species to be seen.

The peak period of the waders’ migration is approaching. We have installed the camera in western Estonia, on the Noarootsi coast to observe the migration of waders; the site is considered to be the best in Läänemaa for studying and observing the waders’ migration.
