When worlds collide
Fred’s family often spend their summers looking for wildlife to photograph. One evening, a small bird flew right in front of the car. When they reached their destination, Fred was shocked to see that they had hit the bird, which was probably a warbler. Five years old at the time, Fred took this photograph ‘to remember a sad moment’.
Estonia is a small country that is big on biodiversity. The combination of pristine forests and widespread wetlands attract a wealth of species, including bears, wolves, lynx and wild boar. Located on the migratory flight path to the Arctic, Estonia boasts some of the best birdwatching in Europe.
