Tallinn to Ennu Farm

Ille's exhibition

During a 2 day stay in the capital I was privileged to view my friend Ille's personal art exhibition in the city museum, and be introduced to the most exquisite hot chocolate drink I'd ever had. After this short stay we traveled together to her farm some 200 Km south, part of the tiny village of Vissuvere. Now only utilised by neighboring farmers to graze cattle and grow a small acreage of wheat, the property contains about 30 hectares of almost impenetrable, silver birch woodland and 50 hectares of fields, left to weeds, mainly clover. Between heavy showers Ille and I were able to cover most of her land, with the natural highlights being White-tailed Eagle, Goshawk, Hobby taking a Woodlark, White Stork, Golden Oriole, Wood Warblers aplenty, Tree Sparrow, Crested Tit, Common Crane and Roller, along with Camberwell Beauty, Green-underside Blue and Map butterflies.
