Alutaguse karuonnid

karu_karu

Alutaguse karuonnidest on väga hea võimalus näha ja pildistada karusid, teisi metsloomi ning linde. Alutaguse on teada-tuntud karukants, umbes pooled Eesti 800 mesikäppadest elavad sealsetes metsades ja soodes. Meie onnid asuvad Alutaguse lääne osas, Sirtsi soo lähistel, Tallinnast ja Tartust pooleteise kuni kahe tunni autosõidu kaugusel. Varjeid on erinevate suurustega ja eesmärkidega. Kõik onnid on mugavad ja hubased, varustatud toolide, voodite ning käimlatega.

 

Karude ja metsloomade vaatlusonnides

on peamine eesmärk karude ja teiste metsloomade nägemine. Kahes onnis on kokku neli eraldatud kabiini, igas kahe narivoodiga. Vaatlusaknad on varje kahes küljes. Onni ees avaneb vaade varjulisele metsale, kus on oodata peamiselt metsaliike – karusid, kährikuid, rähne jt. Tagaküljelt näeb oja luhale, mis meeldib avamaastiku elukatele. Mõnikord tulevad põdrad ja kitsed soola lakkuma, händkakk peab hiirejahti või taevas tiirutab kaljukotkas. Ojakaldal einestab kobras või metssead käivad vett joomas.

Onni juurde on paigaldatud hämar valgus, mis loomi ei häiri, nii et vaadelda on võimalik terve öö.

Uus asi on onni kõrval asuv tundlik mikrofon, mis metsahääled läbi kvaliteetsete kõlarite onni toovad. Mõnel vaiksel ööl võib helide maailm loomade nägemisest veel võimsamaid looduselamusi pakkuda – nii on onnist kuuldud hundikarja ulgumist, põtrade pulmakutseid ja värbkakku vilistamist.

Siit saad vaadata nimekirja loomadest ja lindudest, keda onnidest nähtud ja kuulud on.

Meie onnides on käinud paljud rahvusvahelised ajakirjanikud, nii näiteks kajastas  vaatlusonni külastust Prantsusmaa TV2 telekanal- http://bit.ly/2AW08bx-2

 

Karude pildistamise varjed

asuvad vaatlusonnidest linnulennult 10 km kaugusel. Need on nn vanad onnid, kust on tehtud palju erinevaid karude pilte. Kohaldasime vanad onnid paremini fotograafide vajadustele. Fotokottidega avade madal võttenurk ja taustal olev mets pakub suurepäraseid võimalusi karude ja kährikute jäädvustamiseks.

We spent a wonderful night in the hide.

The place it was comfortable and with excellent observation points, all inside we had a great time.

Around 6pm the birds started to arrive, first the treecreepers and the blackcaps, then later the Jay. When they began to lose hope, the first bear appeared around 8:30 pm, go away and returned a little later.

According to a second bear, the bigger one who stayed longer to eat. Only then did the raccoon dogs arrive Three roe deer, birds and raccoons popped up this morning.

However fantastic experience, you see the bear from so close it was wonderful. Thank you, I hope you can continue to organize these tours as well as small groups of passionate people. For us an indelible memory. Thank you.

Hi Peep! Yes, everything was awesome 🙂 We saw a lot of bears and racoon dogs and Andreas had the binocular for us. We left it in the hide, because Andreas was not there in the morning. Hope that was Ok. Big thx for all and i can recommend your hide to all people. Perfect and really interesting place.

Ursula Zeilinger 4/08/2018 

Dear Bert, it was a great experience. We saw one or more Brown Bears and a Raccoon Dog family. We were really happy that we had so much luck. We left both binoculars back in the hide. Thank you for organising it and greetings to our friendly guide. Kind regards, Ursi.

Luc visited the new Brown Bear hide in July 2017:

I just wanted to thank you very much for the night. It was amazing! The bear came many times! Better than the zoo 😉

Thanks for your mail and thanks for stay at the hide. The week has gone by so fast since I got back from Estonia.

I had a succesful two nights. Yes saw bear on both nights. First night came about 7.30 pm and second night some time after 8pm.

The weather was great too.

George 28/06/2013:

We found the starting point with no problems –  I had downloaded it from your website to my phone before we left. Andres was waiting for us and so we knew we had arrived.

The weather was not great as it was raining and the overcast sky made it a little too dark for photographs. It also made the mosquitoes particularly troublesome. However, we found the hides and once we had changed our wet clothes we settled in.

We saw what we came to see.

About 21.30h, a raccoon dog visited 4 or 5 times staying a few minutes each time (searching out the bait that had been left). The light was good enough for viewing through binoculars and we watched it for a about 30 minutes in total. That was really good as I didn’t expect to see a raccoon dog. Each time it visited, it took away some of the bait  it could drag from where it was placed under the fallen tree.  Had the light been better, it would have been easy to photograph. Even though the light was quite good for viewing but for photography – iso set to 2400 and with F4.5 lens – the resulting shutter speeds were still too slow.

About 23.30 a large brown bear visited. We had a good view of the bear for about 1 hour. Even at this time of the day it was not very dark and so we could watch the bear easily  (Even though it was too was too dark for photography – 1 s exposure times at ISO 3200). Again, it took the bait that was left (the bait the raccoon dog had left behind). Clearly the bear found no problem in moving the tree and revealing the bait. Again, the bear would take some bait and go and eat it a few meters away and then return.

We also saw a fox 3 times and had a visit from a group of 3 wild boar – they looked young to me and were quite entertaining.

Also seen, 3 visits from a fox, a small bat, and pair of woodpeckers.

So, overall we were very satisfied. Clearly, if we want to see bears in daylight, we need to think more about the best time for a possible visit in the future.

Dipl. Biol. Sebastian Rogahn in May 2011:

Watching time really was great! The adult male (Brown Bear) came out at 21:03 PM and stayed there for almost half an hour! Before there only was one red fox, a goose hawk, ravens and one magpie.

Ben Hoare from BBC Wildlife visited Natourest Brown Bear hide in May 2010:

I was determined to see my fist brown bear. Not least because bear tourism has become big business in Europe, with hides in Sweden and Finland offering success rates of higher than 90 percent. By now, our party had recorded bear prints, scats and claw marks raked across tree bark, and even the remains of a boar that had been stripped to the bone by these opportunist omnivores. So we were quietly confident of observing the real thing. Waiting for the bears to appear was nerve-racking. Two ravens and, bizarrely, a nuthatch of the ghosty northern race visited the site to pick at its flesh, while a pine marten zipped across the cleaning and vanished up a tree. And then, illuminated by the setting sun, a mother bear and her cub ambled into view. Read article

 

 

Ligikaudne asukoht:

 

 

 

Avatud

Iga päev mai algusest oktoobri keskpaigani. 

Kestvus

Koos ööbimsega karuonnis umbes 15 tundi.

Mais, juunis, juulis ja augustiks kell 17:00 kuni järgmisel hommikul 8:00.

Septembris ja oktoobris kell 16:00 kuni 8:00.

Raskusaste

Autoparklast on  onnini 1,7 km mööda metsateed kõndimist.

Mida selga panna? 

Soe ja mugav riietus. Onnini jõudmiseks sobivad matkasaapad või kummikud, sest vahest võib rada olla märg ja porine. Onnis istumiseks soojad varusokid ja/või sisejalatsid. 

Asukoht

Täpse kohtumispaiga kaardi saadame peale broneeringu kinnitamist. Vaatlusonn asub Tudust umbes 10 km Rakvere suunas ja fotovarjed 20 km Maidla suunas.

Olme

Onnides on narivoodid koos magamiskottide ja patjadega. Toolid istumiseks ja kuivkäimla. Voolavat vett ja elektrit ei ole. Lahtine tuli on onnides rangelt keelatud. Vaatlusonnides saab pildistada läbi akna.

Mida kaasa võtta?

Kindlasti soovitame kaasa võtta binokli, sest karud ja teised loomad on ettevaatlikud ja nad ei tule onnile väga lähedale. Lisaks aitab binokkel hämaras paremini näha. Meie käest on võimalik laenata hea valgustundlikkusega nn jahimehe binoklit(8×56 Danubia Bussards – 5 €/öö).  Õhtu on pikk ja seepärast tasub kindlasti kaasa võtta juua ja süüa. Nõrgem lamp või valgusega telefon, et vajadusel pimeduses toimetada.

Käitumine

Me saadame teid parklast onnini, kuid üldjuhul koos teiega seal ei ööbi. Onnis peab olema vaikselt ja kasutama võimalikult vähe ja nõrka valgust.

Mis seal kandis veel teha

Onni lähedal asuvad RMK Seljamäe ja Tudu järve matkarajad. Lähim söögikoht on Tudu Jaama Trahter. Siin inglise keelne ülevaade koos linkidega
