We have managed to see Ural Owl on most of our Estonia tours. This one posed nicely in 2005.

Cranes are common nesting birds in Estonia. At the time of our tour, local birds are starting to nest, while Russian birds are passing through.

Common Rosefinches are seen from mid-May

Migrating Bluethroats are difficult to spot as they are real skulkers. This one fed around boats in a small harbour at Matsalu.

We found a Citrine Wagtail on our first trip to Estonia when it was a very rare bird. Since then, they have become regular breeders.

The first Corncrakes arrive at the time of our visit. The shorter vegetation at this time helps us to locate these and the Great Snipe.

Penduline Tits will be nest-building. This male showed well in 2005.

The peat bogs attract breeding Wood sandpiper, Black-tailed Godwit and Common Gull

Meadows around Matsalu Bay

The pine forest is home to Nutcracker, Crested Tit, Bear & Capercaillie

Migrating Swallows rest at Matsalu

The Northern Nuthatches have white breasts. This bird nested next to our hotel.

 

Estonian Manor House.

 

The Elk or Moose is common at Matsalu

Estonia is home to several reed-loving skulkers. The Great Reed Warbler is perhaps the most likely to be heard first.

Red-breasted Flycatcher is normally located by its song.

Wood Warblers sing in every park.
