The beaver camera that has been monitoring life on the shore of Penijõgi in the Matsalu National Park has finished its transmission.
The web camera was installed near the beaver hut in order to see the animal of the year and its doings more closely. Although the inhabitants of the nest were not very eager to appear in camera view very often viewers managed to see in action and hear a great number of different mammal and bird species in addition to the beavers here at the edge of the largest reed field along the coast of the Baltic.

In March, before installing the web camera in the nest, we waited impatiently for the start of male bird Karl’s migration. Karl did have a tracking device but the lack of GSM cover in southern Sudan kept us in the dark during four months, from mid-November 2018 when Karl reached his wintering site. However, on March 16 during the spring migration Karl’s locations were registered and all seemed to be in order. We had nearly two weeks of time to install the camera at the nest. The nest could be seen in the web camera from March 24 onwards.
