White-tailed eagle         Merikotkas       Haliaeëtus albicilla


… and not for the first time during the last month. Still the same adult, ringed with the number  E301 and with a nice white tail.

In due time we will find out whom we have to do with.

Tõnn brings first spruce twig to nest


Greater spotted eagle        Suur-konnakotkas       Clanga clanga


In the video we see the visit of the male in the nest just after a quarter to three. Probably Tõnn has inspected the surroundings and acknowledges the nest as his own by bringing the spruce twig.

Actually Tõnn with his transmitter arrived already yesterday. The visit to the nest at a quarter to six lasted for only a second. Was there something in the surroundings that seemed disturbing to him? See the video below.

The sixth season of the red deer web camera is coming to an end. At the end of February five years ago we were first able to observe the doings of the deer in Saaremaa in real time via the web camera. Yes, indeed time flies, runs, ticks away … it doesn’t dawdle  …

In the video records of the last few days we can see that in the second week of spring one deer bull already has six new furry antler tines while others are bare-headed and many still have their antlers firmly on their heads.
