Estonia in spring

Mid-May is the optimal time for bird-watching in Estonia – at least if your aim is to see as many bird species as possible. A wide range of species have begun breeding, some are about to leave for the north and each day brings new arrivals. Thousands of swans, hundreds of thousands of ducks and geese, millions of Scoters and Long-tailed Ducks, myriads of waders and passerines are stopping en route to feed and build up their energy reserves for the long trip to their arctic breeding grounds.


Usually the trip yields more than 175 different bird species.
