Spring-autumn 2011: Bear webcam, Eagle- and Stork-TV

  • From 19 May until 10 December 2011 a new forest camera was in operation in Alutaguse. A plethora of wild animals including brown bears have been sighted there almost daily.
  • From 15 April until 28 October 2011 live videostream was available from the Lesser Spotted Eagles nest. But as it turned out we only saw the setup and ordering of the nest. The real nesting took place 50 meters away in a new nest and was not visible in the web camera. Relocating the camera was not possible as it would have disturbed the birds too much.
  • From 19 April until 28 October 2011 EENet broadcasted from the legendary stork nest. This nest has been virtually watchable since 2007. Black stork Padis did inhabit the nest in the spring but as he didn't find a mate the lesser-spotted eagle overtook the nest as happened during the second half of the summer of 2010.
  • From 21 April until 21 September 2011 it was possible to observe the activities of the second black-stork camera located in western Estonia. The viewers could follow the life of the stork pair Tiina and Tiit as they lay four eggs, as the eggs hatched and the four chicks were growing up.
  • On March 10 started the third season of following the life of the white-tailed eagles in a nest in Läänemaa. The nest was initially set up and cleaned by the white-tailed eagles, but wasn’t used in the end. We also had a few common buzzards contemplating the nesting site, but in the end they built their own nest nearby. Finally the nest was taken by a mallard.

Winter 2010-2011: Wild Boar TV, eagles feeding ground, bird feeder camera

  • From 14 December 2010 until 13 March 2011 was possible to observe live the eagles feeding ground
  • From 23 December 2010 until 22 March 2011 the winter bird feeder camera introduced its visitors
  • From 22 December 2010 until 10 April 2011 EENet brought to its viewers the feeding ground for wild animals in Tartumaa
