In the web camera we can once more follow the activities of wild brown or river trout (Salmo trutta morpha fario) in a short section of a small stream which is also the only suitable spawning area in the stream flowing through the ponds.

It is a common annual autumn view to see the roe deer enjoy the sprouting seeds in grain fields. The male in the video still wears his antlers despite having winter fur but part of his species comrades are already bare-headed.

The roe deer that we see in November already have their greyish brown winter fur coat with the white rear mirror  on, despite the warm weather. Those who are a little late with the change of fur still look a little darker than the others.

On Thursday November 15th the annual winter bird counting season on the mainland started. The Estonian Ornithological Society invites both experienced ornithologists and newcomers to join in.

During the winter the birds should  be counted on three occasions in a territory and path of one’s own choice. The first counting period is on November 15 – 28. The observer must recognize wintering  birds (up to 40 species) from their calls and exterior. For the count a path about 10 km long should be chosen that may run through different landscapes.

The choice of location for the jackal camera has really been successful. Not a single day has passed as yet without jackals in camera view. It seems that the camera is at a path of the jackals that they patrol several times a day. As soon as the jackals disappear out of sight the foxes are there and the other way about; so they alternate in the darkness. Small morsels behind the rock attracts them and makes them stay around a little longer here.
