A few days ago the Penijõe beaver camera was adjusted so that it now looks directly towards the river. In the previous site the beavers were not willing to pass the camera eye; they were busy somewhere in another corner, so that some Looduskalender watchers began worrying about whether the beavers really lived there. Nothing special was to be seen but plenty could be heard: the sounds from nature are fantastic in the Penijõe camera and for the sake of those alone it is worth keeping the camera there.
Now we can also see more. After the adjustment of the camera interesting things at once started to happen. Here are three videos that the attentive Forum members, headed by Fleur, have picked out from the beaver camera – firstly the video of the elk swimming across the river, then the deer buck swimming across the river and finally also the path of the animal of the year in the water along the river.
