Rival great tits.


You are invited to collect great tit calls with the “Minu loodusheli – My nature sound” app for smart mobiles!

Great tits have tens of different songs and calls. The app  “Minu loodusheli – My nature sound” makes it possible for everyone with an interest in nature to record the sounds of the great tit and other calls in nature and make them into sound observations in a database.

For all “Minu loodusheli” users a personal data file is created that can be heard, analysed and also shared with others for listening through  the web page or a smart mobile. The  collection of bird sounds will provide an overview of the diversity of great tit calls and may also lead to new finds in the repertoire of  great tits.

Badger   Mäger        Meles meles     
In the video from Wednesday night we saw a strange badger in the webcam. It at once attacked the male who protected his nest at the opening to the den (below is a link to the video from Wednesday).
In the present video we see the same creature in daylight, and it is a quite large individual. In the beginning the male nest owner appears and makes a short tour in the forest. After about half the video the huffing stranger appears.

It was 5 o’clock in the morning. By its behaviour it could be understood that the arrival was not a resident of this den – it moved extremely silently, sniffed the surroundings, approached the den opening sneaking low down. A description as in a detective story because the eyes of the stranger are also covered by a black mask.

In fact, as the videos show, the badgers in the web camera have been out for longer periods only for three days. Trail cameras in several locations in Estonia show however that badgers went out already after the so-called cold spell on January 27th.
