Last week the barnacle geese reached Estonia and came into the Haeska camera view too – they were clearly a couple of weeks late or even more. The warm weather kept them in place in the north until the last moment and so they were not seen in September except a few small groups of local origin.

Yesterday’s radar observation in Esivere showed for the first time this large migration of various bird species from the Arctic that reached an order of hundreds of thousand individuals. A favourable slight northern wind set the birds moving.

The first Forum meeting in Alliklepa at the Looduskalender field site. Autumn 2008.

To tell it all from the beginning we have to look back ten years and across an ocean. Back then viewers of the black stork web camera of Looduskalender were from the whole world. By chance we gathered at that time in the Canadian Hancock Wildlife Foundation forum.
