BIRDWATCHING IN PUISE

PUISE CAPE

You have reached the very end of the Puise peninsula- to Puise Cape. In the soviet era a fishery harbour and a fishery enterprise were established here, closed down in the 1990ies. Now the harbour and the majority of previous buildings have been reconditioned, while village life, fishery and tourism are encouraged.

Part on the Väinameri Strait together with about 50 bigger or lesser islands are incorporated to the borders of the Matsalu National Park. The sea is here rocky and shallow, the depth is just about 3-5 meters, while around the islets it´s even more shallow. Seven islets are annonced to be a strict reservation zone and belong entirely to the birds.

BIRD FAUNA

Puise Cape is a very appropriate site for bird watching. In spring hundreds of thousands of birds fly across the coastal seo to their breeding sites in far North. Lots of them stop over in Matsalu. In late April- early May flocks of tens of thousands of Long-tailed Ducks, Scaups and Goldeneyes are floating in the open sea. Artic and Red-throated Loons migrate in small flocks.  A large number of Black  and Velvet Scoters stop over around Papilaid and Kumari islets. The massive flyoff takes place in the 2nd half of May and lasts about ten to fifteen days. The best time for watching the migration stream is from 4 or 5 o´clock in the afternoon till the dark, althougt the migration goes on until the morning. In the summer Scaups, Goldeneyes, Elders, Greylag Geese and Mute Swans gatherb to the Interisland sea to muolt.

Over ten thousand pairs of birds breed in the islands. There are Seagulls, Herring Gulls, Common Gulls, Elders, Velvet Scoters, Greylag Geese , Mute Swans, Terns, Oystercatchers, Ringed Plovers and a plethora of others, nicely side by side.
