New webcam helps spot eagles at WOW Demonstration Site in Estonia

Not even aware of their own success, the eagles in the “Haapsalu-Noarootsi Bays” are the new movie stars in a recently launched camera project in Estonia. This winter the live camera project started to watch the White-tailed Eagles (Haliaeetus albicilla) in their feeding place. So far 7 different White-tailed Eagles have been observed.

Every day these magnificent birds visit the feeding place for a couple of minutes, not knowing they are being featuring in a large camera project being implemented by a range of different partners (Internet portal ilm.ee; Eenet, local NGOs such as Läänemaa Bird Club, Silma Märgala, Kotkaklubi and a number of private persons).

Under good weather conditions you can also try to spot the eagles live at:

  1. EOS monitors migratory birds – The Estonian Ornithological Society (BirdLife in Estonia) recently launched its monitoring project in Cape Põõsaspea, the main bottleneck site for arctic waders, geese and ducks in Europe. Up to now 620,000 waterbirds have already crossed the monitoring point, many of them being Common Scoter Melanitta nigra. For many species the migration will peak in the second half of September and first half of October when most divers arctic ducks and geese pass Cape Põõsaspea. Among them there will be Long-tailed Duck Clangula hyemalis, Scaup Aythya marila and Velvet Scoter Melanitta fusca. If you want to find out more about this project, click here.
