Destinations: Haeska - Estonia
Haeska is a hamlet on the northern side of Matsalu Bay (Matsalu laht) in Estonia. There is a high birdwatching tower here (Haeska Linnutorn) which gives views over the bay. In season, this is a great place to scan for waterfowl, wildfowl and waders. The surrounding grazing pastures, on the approach road to the tower, are often full of Barnacle Geese in spring. Rarities like Red-breasted Goose and Lesser White-fronted Goose turn up here every year, too.
