Lynx         Ilves ehk harilik ilves        Lynx lynx


Although in an enclosure  the lynxes rather prefer  to keep themselves to themselves. The only time when they look for being close to each other  is the heat period but we will have time to write about that later..

On the stormy Saturday night  the hoarse calls of the lynxes were heard and an active movement seen. On Sunday all three inhabitants in the enclosure were in camera view at the same time.

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.
