During the autumn migration season, incredible numbers of southward-rushing birds, can be seen with hundreds of thousands of wildfowl (Long-tailed Ducks. Velvet Scoters, Red- and Black-throated Divers) passing there per day at the peak season. In Sõrve bird station 1 million Chaffinches and tens of thousands Bramblings have been counted in one day during autumn migration.
The long outstretching peninsulas offer plenty of good seawatching opportunities. Cape Põõsaspea (Spitham) is the best seawatching place for observing migrating arctic wildfowl, with more than 2 million birds passing through every autumn. It is a spectacular natural show rarely matched anywhere else in Europe!
West-Estonia is also well known as a Crane concentration area. As many as 50 000 birds gather around the bays and lagoons and feed in adjacent fields every autumn. In the last weeks of September, following the masses of Cranes flying in on a golden evening or out on a misty morning from their roosting places is an unforgettable experience. Half of them winter in Spain, others fly to Hungary and continue their migration via Turkey to North-Africa.

There is one more important attraction in Estonia – an invasion of Siberian species in autumn. Nutcrackers, who are rather secretive birds at spring time, can be seen now in hundreds. Sometimes they can fly only few meters over your head. As autumn is a time for rare vagrants, one can find here Yellow-browed or Pallas`Leaf Warblers, Yellow-billed Divers, Red Phalaropes.

Mammal watchers should be ready for surprises as well. September and October is a mating season for Elks therefore, seeing them before sunset is quite easy. To set off on foot late one starry night, into a wild area just a few kilometres from the Russian frontier and listen to the howls of wolves is a unique and thrilling moment, but not entirely unexpected in this most surprising of countries.
