Destinations: Aardla Polders - Estonia

The wet meadows, pastures and ponds near the hamlet of Aardla, lie just south of Tartu in Estonia. Spring wader and wildfowl passage here can be impressive with several rarities recorded, too. Breeding birds include Red-necked Grebe and Citrine Wagtail. The paths which cross the polders are often flooded but the area can be viewed from adjacent roads at such times. A good, high birding tower lies at the heart of the area.
