bear watching hide estonia

Okay, so I have lately got some questions about bear watching and how it works. So it’s about 1h 45min drive from Tallinn and you have to be there by 4 or 5 pm depending of the season. I suggest to start at noon, have a lunch in Rakvere and also shop there for dinner. you have to take dinner with you and it’s going to be sandwiches or bakery or salat or some other stuff you like, but it’s quick to eat and unwrapping does not make much noise. So after parking the car there is a 15 min walk to the hide through the forest. We settle in and satrt waiting.

So, it’s time to share some photos of Estonian biggest mammal – Eurasian elk (or in America they say “moose”). They are mostly seen all over Estonia and the best time for that is in autumn when they have their mating season.  But actually it doesn’t matter which season you come, it’s quite possible to see them all year round. We have wildlife watching tour! Book a tour and let’s see where the nature takes us

Last Friday went to photo assignement to the Museum of Coomunist crimes at Patarei prison in center of Tallinn and found a fox on the roof. It’s a 3 floor limestone building. Semi-abandoned, museum is just part of the building. Clearly it found a opening to enter the building and then found it’s way to the roof through roof windows. Foxes has become fairly common animals in Tallinn as we have lot of green areas and some forest areas around Tallinn have vanished and replased by private housing areas. But the fox was enjoying morning sun and was not disturbed by the gulls and crows that felt dangered by it’s presents. If you want to do some wildlife photography while visiting Tallinn, then we can meet for nature phtography day tour (foloow THIS link for details).
