Yes. I have heard him several times singing very close to the cam or even on top of it. He must be breeding here.

The visible bird is a Skylark. The alarming bird in the end of the video is a Meadow Pipit in my opinion.

I think the visible bird is also a Meadow pipit.

Redshanks are very active near the camera the last couple of days. They use the cam installation or something (a bush?) very near it to sit on.
Meadow pipits are also very close sometimes.
Lapwings are much more quiet now.
The Dunlins are still very active but unfortunately usually only at a distance.
Today many times a Swallow passed low over the ground, sometimes close to the cam. Usually they flew from right to left.

Difficult to see but this is probably a pair of Redshanks. On the left the male with raised wings.

Yesterday evening around 23:20 there was a major disturbance. All the Lapwings and Redshanks were alarming. The disturbance seemed to move from left to right. This could have been a Fox.

A lot of flowering Buttercups (Ranunculus acris?). On the lower right also flowering Sorrel (Rumex acetosa?).

Both species must be correct. In a similar habitat nearby these 2 species are present at the moment.

My suggestions were based on likelihood in comparable Dutch circumstances. I am not familiar with the Estonian flora.
