Lynx and Steller’s Eider - 7 Days in Lahemaa and Saaremaa

March has a really different feeling to it than the months prior to it. The days have become longer and there's more and more sunlight in the air melting the snow and ice. It's also a busy time in nature for many mammal and bird species.

For the main target species for this tour, the Eurasian Lynx, March signifies the beginning of the mating season. This is also the time of the year when the chances to see it are the greatest. For the lynx, we will start looking before dusk and finish around midnight in Lahemaa National Park. The rest of the day will be used for resting, looking for recent tracks, and birding! Because this tour is not only about lynx but also about other mammals and birds.

The other most important target for this tour will be the seller's Eider, who overwinter in Estonian waters. For this we are heading to Saaremaa. Other birds, we will look for are owls, woodpeckers, forest grouse, divers, seaducks, and everything else Estonian nature has to offer.
