Destinations: Dirhami - Estonia

The beach and harbour at Dirhami (Dirhami neem) is particularly good in times of pasage (March to May and August to October). Good numbers of divers, gebes, geese, ducks and terns pass this way and passerine rarities are possible. In poor weatherdDucks such as Long-tailed, Scaup and Common and Velvet Scoters often reside in the small, sheltered port. Pipits and Wagtails often land on the beach and the pinewoods can be checked for other songbirds. Dirhami lies on Estonia's west coast in Laane County about an hour north of Haapsalu.
