Not many birders make it as far east as Rapina polders. They’re actually rather difficult to find (at least without my book!) but, as you can see here they are well worth it

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

Rapina polders

It’s quite an expanse of wetland with a very useful tower in the centre

in 2010, these flooded meadows were great for waders and also surprising numbers of White-winged Black Terns

As you can see, there was plenty of water in the other direction too
