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).
The project is also part of a wide range of activities undertaken since March 2007 at the Haapsalu-Noarootsi Bays in the framework of the Wings over Wetlands Project in Estonia. With the recorded clips, colour-ringed individuals can easily be identified. The beautiful shots resulting from the camera project can be viewed online and are also helping to promote wetland conservation to a wider public in Estonia.
