Lesser-spotted eagle        Clanga pomarina


At the moment the baby bird Raju is one month and three weeks old. He will turn 2 months old on 9th August and at that time we expect his flying capabilities to show.


The parents Karin and Indrek have taken good care of Raju, even though he eagerly snatches any food they ever bring.

The beaver camera that was installed in the Kilingi-Nõmme hunting grounds in Pärnumaa at the end of May has ended transmission.  

At the lodge in Ura two beavers were active until one of the animals was hit by a suddenly breaking tree. The tree fell so quickly and unexpectedly that the animal in the water could not escape the falling trunk. After this incident we have not managed to see two beavers at the same time in camera view. One animal was busy daily in camera view a week longer; in the following week it  was observed only a few times and after that disappeared completely.

Below a video reminder of the hit:
