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

The doings of the Ura beavers brought them into camera view already a minute past midnight. Shortly before three o’clock when the forest birds already woke up and started singing the beavers had been swimming, alone or two together, past the camera exactly 21 times –an active night. 

The water level had suddenly decreased in the pond and it can be  supposed that they worried about the condition of the dam about 50 meters away. During the next two hours the beavers came in camera view only five times so they were probably engaged in the dam construction. From five o’clock in the morning they were no longer to be seen, probably they were settling down to the day’s sleep …

The beaver camera is once more online. This year we will be able to follow the activities of the beavers at their lodge on the shore of the Penijõgi in the Matsalu National Park. Behind the beaver lodge the largest reed field at the Baltic is visible.

The easily movable web camera setup is now ready and installed in Saaremaa. This is the first time that we test such a mobile webcam setup through the Elisa mobile network, and it will be adjusted when needed. The image in real time is shown from the site where the beaver camera that is already familiar to our viewers is situated, about 50-60 m downstream from the beaver dam. About 100 metres downstream from this dam is another beaver dam.

The first night with the beaver camera was promising – before midnight the sound of a beaver chewing at a tree was audible quite close, also frogs quaking, cranes, mallards and tawny owl. At 00.37 the beaver already moved around in camera view. In the morning and in daytime too fish splashed in the water, backs sticking up from the water. Probably roaches.
