Ringing of birds at the  Kakrarahud



Mew gull           Kalakajakas        Larus canus


This spring mew gull Enn (10 years old, hatched 2008 at Kakurahu), nesting at the Kakurahu in Matsalu, got a GPS transmitter.

Last week he was still busy at his breeding territory in the colony but now he has gone on migration. Last  night at midnight he stopped at the south-eastern coast of Saaremaa but today he already spent at the southern tip of the Gotland island.

Storklets being brought back to nest

Today the storklets got transmitters on their backs and rings on their legs. Urmas Sellis together with other bird people undertook the task and not in the nest but under it – the procedure took some time. In daytime the adults are hunting for food and there is a smaller risk for the birdmen to ”get caught” by the adults.

Why does the seal monitoring camera not show any images?

A white-tailed eagle uses the camera stand for sitting on

Four days ago,in early morning, the camera turned on for a moment but went off as soon. The weather in the weekend was stormy but the Internet connection worked.

Perhaps there will be some time in the weekend when the weather allows the reason to be found and when we know the reason we will see what and how to handle it further

While the month-old eaglet still had to be coddled by the mother then a strong development towards independence has taken place during the last week.
