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.
