A month ago a pine forest still grew here. Most of the trees had germinated from the seeds around 1873. This is very long ago considering the age of our country or the length of a human life. These trees were older than our EstonianRepublic which will soon celebrate its 100th year, and they started to grow before my grandmother’s grandmother was born.

By today only stacks of beams, debris and stumps remain.

A worthy gift

A worthy gift.  -  Let us act so that already now at least one forest of at least a 100 years will be left in our home area

The 100 year old EstonianRepublic looks forward to gifts. A  worthy gift in my opinion would be to decide to  care for our home forests.

We can make this decision already before spring.

Is it surprising?

Before the storm last night the weather at the seaside coastal meadow was a little milder and the large antler-bearers come to drink sea water when possible – food is bland and in addition to the salt there are minerals too. This is why the antlers of the animals close to the sea are always a little larger and more impressive than those of the mainland inhabitants at the same age.

The migration map of the cranes shows that all the Estonian cranes with transmitters have reached their winter quarters.

Their autumn migration was again very interesting and gave us much more knowledge about migration paths and wintering areas as well as migration behaviour.
