View from Wednesday morning of white-tailed eagle nest

For the symbols of Estonian primeval nature, the white-tailed eagles and golden eagles and the owls, the breeding period has started and the birds sit on eggs in the nests. The Environmental Board calls on all landowners, forest managers, hunters and all others who move in nature to support the peace during the breeding time of birds that are rare and very sensitive to environmental changes.

Samples are taken from a perished grey seal pup for laboratory purposes.

 

Grey seal        Hallhüljes       Halichoerus grypus

 

A thorough seal count takes about an hour and a half, after that a short sea trip back to Saaremaa, the boat on to the car trailer and the trip goes to the next seal isle.  In the evening numbers are summed up and a summary of the day is made.
