The Mouth of the Lake Pape canal

Putnu vērošana

A good spot for birdwatching is next to the mouth of the lake Pape canal. This 1,77km waterway links Lake Pape to the Baltic Sea. The place is accessible on foot from Pape village.

The birds are aligned in an approximately 1 km narrow band between the sea and the lake. During the migration peak, which is at the end of September to October, some days see birds flowing seamlessly along the streams. The main bird population consists only of a few species – chaffinches, tits, goldcrests, siskins, and others, but many other species move alongside them. A stream of small birds is followed by a set of sparrowhawks, a bit higher the common wood pigeon and geese flocks are an often occurrence.
