On the weekend, 117 gray seal pups (25 carcasses, not a particularly high mortality rate according to the seal researchers) were counted on the small plot of land where the seal camera is located. At the time of the survey 100 adults were present on land. Ten white-tailed eagles were hoping for easy food.

Women’s Day egg!

Never say that spring is not coming! A more splendid surprise cannot be imagined.

From now on the male of the eagle family too will be more visible. Uku has already been entrusted with keeping the egg warm.

In earlier years the webcam tawny owls have started their breeding – laid the first egg – on March 1st (2009) at the earliest and on April 6th (2010) at the latest. Last year, 2015, they laid the first egg on March 4th. We hope that our tawny owls will breed this year too!
