Ilmatsalu is an area of fishponds where you should have no difficulty finding birds such as Red-necked grebe, Penduline Tit and White-tailed Eagle

All the sites in this section are treated, in detail and with precise maps and directions, in my book ‘Finding Birds in Estonia’

If you have any information which you feel would help to update the book, please email me at and I’ll add your observations to these pages

With luck you may get Red-necked Grebe in the bay right next to the tower but typically they retreat to the far side of the lake

Penduline Tits nest in the willows and birches by the side of the path
