Some video footage of the two merganser mama’s with their babies. In the second video, one of the chicks had gotten separated from her own family and ended up with the other family. As soon as the second merganser noticed the intruder, she chased it away rather violently. The poor chick raced back to its own mother, who appeared to give it a bit of a beating before accepting it back into custody.
Meanwhile, the first batch of Tallinn pictures is online at Picasa. Pictures of the Rocca al Mare open air museum and of oldtown Tallinn will follow soon.
