ESTONIA – one of the first bird ringing country´s in the world!
Presenter:  Tarvo Valker                                                                             
The member of Estonian Ornithological Society Council, bird guide

First bird, an Oystercatcher was ringed in Estonia in June 1910, only ten years after bird ringing activity was started in the world. During 100 years 4 million birds were marked with different type of rings. The presentation will give overview of the long history of bird ringing activity in Estonia and talk about the greatest findings from this period. 

Estonia is a land of great natural beauty. With its Siberian-like forests, Scandinavian peat-bogs, watermeadows full of geese and waders, and a fascinating coastline, together with a low human population, empty roads and excellent infrastructure, Estonia has rapidly become a favourite wildlife destination in Europe.

Hunting Butterflies in ESTONIA
Presenter:  Wilf Powell                                                                                   
Butterfly Conservation (member), Wildlife Trust (member), Bedfordshire Natural History Society (member of Council)

 This illustrated presentation will give an overview of the fascinating range of butterflies that are living in this country, which lies on a crossroads between Northern & Southern and Eastern & Western elements of the European butterfly fauna. The Estonian butterfly fauna of about 100 species includes sought after species such as Poplar Admiral, Camberwell Beauty, Northern Chequered Skipper, Cranberry Blue, Pallas's Fritillary and Scarce Fritillary amongst others.

In recent  years Estonia has been a magnet for birdwatchers from Europe and beyond. Now this Baltic State is also becoming a mecca for butterfly and dragonfly enthusiasts eager to see the country´s speciality species.  Because of its history, large parts of the country have remained completely wild, while farming methods in many areas are unintensive resulting in a mosaic of excellent habitats such as numerous flowery meadows, natural forests and massive bog areas. 

We would be happy to meet with you and give you a presentation of our services whatever time is suitable for you during Birdfair 2012.
