Nature cameras open a window to wildlife in Estonia

Estonian is dotted with cameras to connect curious visitors with the stories of local nature. This is a great way to get a close-up of the many species that roam the Estonian shores, forests, and bodies of water. Not only don't you have to be physically present, but you also get a closer look without actually disturbing the animals.

Migratory birds are a fascinating spectacle to observe

Estonian nature cameras are usually streaming actively from February til September. 
Some cameras use solar-powered batteries and therefore might not be streaming at all times. Looduskalender is currently the most popular site for nature live streams in Estonia. The organisation has placed cameras all across the country. You can keep an eye on the day-to-day lives of ospreys, capercaillie, eagles, black storks, and grey seals. 

A new camera around the Alutaguse bear viewing hut frequently captures brown bears as they get on with their day. The camera points directly south, so the image tends to be rather bright in the sunlight and dark at noon. Bears are expected to pass the cameras, especially during the dusk and dawn.

Next up we witnessed the arrival of three-month-old ospreys, prepared by their parents for the upcoming autumn migration season.
