The weighty fish contingent has not started their journey yet: they might reach the Keila  River estuary perhaps in a month at the earliest. Sooner or later – depending on weather and the water conditions the very large salmons and sea trout come in camera view and maybe  groups of tens of river lampreys that soon begin to gather in the river to be prepared early for the springtime spawning .

The young bird Aru (letter A on the leg number) has injured the underside of its wing on its test flights but the slight tear seems to be healing. It is the bird that spends most of its time in the nest. The other young bird can be seen in early morning

The young birds were 86 days old today, next week they will be three months on August 16. The migration period should be starting for the young birds.

In early morning they set off on flights but the young birds must be back in the nest around eight o’clock because male Karl might come to the nest with the early morning prey about then. Who arrives too late in the nest may be left without food – and who wants that.

A rare event was seen in the nature webcam in Ura. A broken tree on the river bank fell into the water and hit a beaver that had been feasting in the water.

Beavers are herbivores; in summer aquatic plants as well as meadowsweets, sedges and also nettles on the bank are on their menu
