The world premiere of the film "The Great Swamp" will take place at the Matsalu Nature Film Festival in Lihula on September 23 at 6 p.m.

Vello moved to the farthest swamp island of Emajõe-Suursoo 30 years ago. He left his previous labor life and the city to live in harmony with the mother of nature. There is still such a nature in Emajõe-Suursoo that is vanishing from the rest of the world. The vast delta allows the species to live on its own, without much human intervention, even though man has been seeking refuge and food supplements in the swamp for thousands of years. Vello makes a living from beekeeping and hunting, his life flows in the rhythm of nature.

The past Christmas season brought not only the normally raging season meals, but for many, the pleasant sizzle of the meeting of the old fellows. Does this information reach all the hundreds of thousands of people around the world who watched Linda and Sulev nest life in 2013 via a sea eagle webcam?

Overview compiled by Triin Leetmaa and Urmas Sellis from Eagle Club (Kotkaklubi).

The 14th season of nest cams has come to its conclusion – the last chicks to leave their nests were the lesser spotted eagles, who left back in early august. The current season offered a variety of emotions for the regular viewer.   

The golden eagles Kalju and Helju had a successful season in Soomaa National Park. Successful were also the lesser spotted eagles Indrek and Karin in Tartu County, and the greater spotted eagles Tõnn and Tiiu in Harju County. All of them raised one male chick. We were pleased to see two fledging chicks for the ospreys Ivo and Iiris in Tartu County.
